'She pushes J-pop/rap in an exciting direction by channeling Japan’s rich history of underground rock music' Needle Drop
Born in Yokohama in 1995, singer/songwriter/poetry rapper/producer HARU NEMURI (春ねむり) started her first band at the age of 17, playing the keyboard and synths. Since suddenly grabbing the microphone at 21, she has been performing under the moniker of HARU NEMURI, the “ultimate weapon” (最終兵器), writing all her music and lyrics herself.
Her debut EP Goodbye, Youth Phobia (さよなら、ユースフォビア) was released in 2016. Shortly after, all her shows in Japan sold out quickly and she was invited to play various festivals before 2017 saw the release of a remix album and a sophomore EP, as well as performances at events like Rock in Japan Festival. That year she also wrote and produced the main title to the film The Eternal Spring.
But all that could not prepare the world for what she would do on her debut album titled Haru to Shura (春と修羅) which came out in April 2018. Mixing elements of alternative rock, post rock, (post) hardcore, spoken word and rap music, she created a unique, forward thinking experimental version of modern music, a dense fusion of the quirky qualities of J-Pop, the intensity of post-hardcore and everything in between all at the same time.
Dj Flugvel Og Geimskip makes videos and plays horror music from outer space with her bespoke table of lights and electronic toys.
dj. flugvél og geimskip (Airplane and Spaceship) is the solo project of Steinunn Hardardottir that draws influences from a thousand worlds.
Defined as electronic horror music with a space twist, the music is a mix of playful beats, cool bass, catchy melodies and high pitched vocals.
Her live performances are colorful and poetic and her music deals with mysteries, dreams and dangers of the night.
The concerts are like a strange blend of music, horror stories, poetry and theater. The mood is set by storytelling between songs, the use of incense, smoke, lights and a backdrop video. The audience is left feeling like they are in a vivid dream or have travelled to outer space.
dj. flugvél og geimskip released her third album in 2015; Nótt á hafsbotni (Night at the Bottom of the Ocean), where the topic is the deep ocean. Her last album, Glamúr í geimnum (Glamour in Space) was all about the magic of space. Nótt á hafsbotni is a heavier album then Glamúr í geimnum but the beats are dancier and the melodies are influenced by Asian music, for example from India and Syria. The album won the Icelandic Kraumur Music Awards in 2015, was nominated as the Best Pop Album at the Icelandic Music Awards 2015 and received raving reviews from both Uncut and The Arts Desk amongst others.
