ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF to tour with Refused plus London show at St John on Bethnal Green!

Anna von Hausswolff prepares to bring her crushing live show to the UK again, including a string of regional dates with Refused.



“Anna von Hausswolff is a genuine one off… The boldness of her vision is compelling.” – **** The Observer
“From ethereal balladry to explosive free form space rock… Cyclopean in scale and ambition.” - The Wire
“Brooding, epic and utterly captivating: the dark side has never sounded so appealing.” - 9/10, Loud & Quiet
“Vast and apocalyptic.” - 8/10, Uncut
“An undeniable power… Part siren, part lightning rod for the disenfranchised, she sings with unfettered abandon.” - 4/5 Mojo
"A huge, brooding record that fuses ethereal fantasy with the portentous drama of rumbling organ drone" - The Quietus
“Our shaky grasp on reality is tested by the sonic assault created by her dramatic pipe organ, wailing vocals and post-rock dynamics” – Sunday Times Culture
There is clearly little interest in skirting with the borders. Go hard or go home. And my, has she gone hard this time…. A complete revelation.” – 8/10, Drowned In Sound
"Stunning, immensely immense, harrowing at times and yes, quite awe-inspiring" - Dangerous Minds
 Having released her apocalyptic new album The Miraculous late last year to wide critical acclaim, Anna von Hausswolff kicks off her plans for 2016 by announcing a string of European tour dates, including a show at St John on Bethnal Green for Convergence Festival and a run of UK regional shows with Refused.
The Miraculous (out now on City Slang) is an album steeped in history, mystery, magic and terror, drawing on tales & folklore from her homeland of Sweden, whilst making full use of the Acusticum Pipe Organ in Piteå, Northern Sweden, whose colossal sound – with 9000 pipes – swells heroically throughout the album.
This magnificent instrument’s unusual features – built-in glockenspiel, vibraphone, celeste and percussion, as well as what von Hausswolff describes as “a screaming bird sound” produced by “pipes half covered in water” further broadened the record’s aesthetic. Yet, for all the power of the music, it is Anna von Hausswolff’s incomparable voice that sits first and foremost, swooping around the instruments to phenomenal effect.
Anna von Hausswolff debuted her new material in the UK at London’s Royal Festival Hall during David Byrne’s Meltdown in August before returning for an unforgettable sell out show at London’s Oslo in December. Now she prepares to tour the UK properly for the first time.
