For the past few years, Pål Moddi Knutsen has been enchanting audiences far and wide with his wistful tales of home, life and love, all passionately delivered with his trademark lulling vocals and irresistible guitar-led melodies. This week, the celebrated singer/songwriter have been given the honor of curating the new Nordic Playlist this week.
To accompany a strong selection of Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Icelandic entries, Moddi chose Emilie Nicolas’ ‘Nobody Knows’ and Gjermund Larsen Trio’s ‘Tøyenvals’ as his Norwegian favs.
Following on from three album releases, Moddi is now gearing up to unleash a new live EP entitled ‘Live at Jakob Church of Culture’, which will be released on the 22nd September via Propeller Recordings. The EP will present a number of Moddi’s tracks which have been stripped down to their bare bones and reimagined in a simplistic, mesmerising way.
The Nordic Playlist folks caught up with Moddi ahead of his EP release to find out more about its creation and to hear about his favourite Nordic tracks and artists. Tune in to his Nordic Playlist and read the interview HERE.
