Nordic Giants on Kscope

By Michael J.W. Stickings

One of the most recent signings to Kscope, the great label that is home to Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Anathema, Gazpacho, The Pineapple Thief, and others, is Nordic Giants, a post-rock duo similar in sound to, or in a way a combination of, Sigur Ros and God is an Astronaut (though they're experimental enough to defy easy comparisons and have very much developed a sound, and style, of their own).

Kscope will be releasing the band's latest two EPs, Build Seas and Dismantle Suns (both initially self-released in October 2013), as a single LP on November 17, with a new album scheduled for early next year, but you can also find their 2010 debut EP, A Tree as Old as Me, on iTunes and elsewhere -- it's definitely worth checking out.

Here's a preview from Kscope:

And here's a clip from a show (and they're noted for their astonishing multi-media performances) at Miss Peapod's in Falmouth, Cornwall, England:
