Following on from a year that saw Ja Ja Ja launch its second festival as well as a residency in Berlin, the club night is now set to return to The Lexington on Thursday 19th February with a stunning line up of three of the Nordic region’s most exciting prospects: Psyence Fiction (NO), Jennie Abrahamson (SWE) and Mont Oliver (DEN).
Psyence Fiction, formerly known as iampsyencefiction started off as the solo-project of Lofoten-born Aleksander Johansen. After a string of shows in small clubs and DIY-spaces, the one-man project expanded into a full band. They released their self-titled EP iampsyencefiction in the fall of 2013 and went on to perform alongside Bon Iver’s Volcano Choir at Oslo’s Sentrum Scene.
The sound of Psyence Fiction will be familiar to anyone with a fondness for The National, Mark Kozelek, Kurt Vile or Red House Painters. But where many bands fail to make their own way in a crowded genre, Psyence Fiction easily stand out from the crowd with Johansen’s distinct lyrics and signature baritone voice.
Psyence Fiction’s debut album will see its release later in 2015.
