Firewoodisland/ Delight a Thief/ h.eldritch on Monday 4th June 2018
In 2010, Norwegian singer, songwriter and producer Stian Vedøy moved to Cardiff, UK. He started a solo project called Firewoodisland (which is ‘Vedøy’ translated into English), while studying for a masters in music production. A coming together of fellow like-minded musicians, followed by a regional win in Norway’s Bandwagon Battle of the Bands in 2013 saw a solo project become a full band. A debut EP, called ILD, quickly followed in early 2014.
Now Bristol-based, the band have seen their music reach an ever-increasing audience since the release of ILD and their recent follow-up EP Dome. They’ve come to the attention of Q Magazine, Clash, The 405 and Earmilk (amongst others) and have twice won Amazing Radio’s Audition. They’ve also featured as Artist of the Week on BBC Radio Wales, have had support from Spotify, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, WFUV (New York), BBC Introducing West and have twice made the Top 40 on Norway’s Radio 102.
As impressive on-stage as on record, Firewoodisland have also been busy sharpening their live chops, having headlined the Richer Unsigned showcase for Q Magazine, as well as playing venues such as London’s Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, The Garage and Servant Jazz Quarters, as well as The Fleece and The Louisiana in Bristol and Moles in Bath.
Delight a Thief are a Class A psychedelic progressive rock band based in the South West of England. Built on a tower of pure groove, and drenched in atmosphere, this band will play the first festival in outer space.
For twenty-one years a dark bird drifted with the wind never wanting to plant its feet.
h. eldritch gives you the ghosts and the machines.
