Indridi | ding ding
Berlin-based Icelander Indridi released his heartening, intimate new album ding ding through Shahzad Ismaily’s figureight records on May 18th 2018 and will be touring Germany soon!
“Indriđi creates a fragile and intimate atmosphere.”
The Line of Best Fit
“Indridi’s voice feels weighted down with emotion, with experience…Really rather special.”
“What starts with simplicity is artfully taken to a superior level…gorgeously delicate.”
Rising into public awareness through the overdriven might of his guitar playing with Icelandic punk-hardcore kings Muck, as a solo artist Indridi has found his songwriting developing into sparse, tactile and magical territory. This newfound aesthetic of softly woven acoustic guitar, voice, and subtle arrangements began its path on his 2016 debut Makril, and now, through ding ding, is elevated to a deeply touching new level of melancholic and delicate expression. This new album bears a similar weight of poignancy and depth as Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s at his most raw, combined with a lyrical witand delivery much like Sun Kil Moon and a beautiful, uniquely off-balance unpredictability (sometimes we are given throat singing, sometimes Icelandic drug slang, sometimes theremin-led soundscapes).
Indridi will be touring Germany in August, September and fall 2018. Here are the shows confirmed so far :
August 30 | Dresden - DE | Sound of Bronkow Festival
September 9 | Berlin - DE | Schokoladen w The Blank Tapes
December 13 | Berlin - DE | Kantine am Berghain w Kaufmann Frust
