Ephemera to play in London on 14 December

Norwegian pop band Ephemera will support Marshmallow (full band) at the Bush Hall in London on 14 December.

16/12/2003 ::

Bush Hall is a a lovely venue with crystal chandeliers, great acoustics and the ambience of a stately home. Better than your usual rock dive. And close to Shepherd's Bush tube station.

Marshmallow’s debut album has received an astonishing media reaction and due to popular demand, they have scheduled a second show at London's Bush Hall. They will be supported by the lovely Ephemera from Norway.

Bergen based Ephemera write their own songs. They play their own instruments and do their own vocal arrangements. When they’re not busy running their own record label that is…

Years of touring clubs and pubs in Scandinavia, England and Scotland have helped create Ephemera’s distinct live sound. Several of the band’s singles have been picked up to be used on soundtracks in England and the US. The girls have made guest appearances on other artist’s albums in Norway.

"Jannicke Larsen, Inger Lise Storksen, and Christine Sandtorv make a sound that is at once both nostalgic and modern; dreamily romantic without being the slightest bit cloying or sappy. How do these girls do it so effortlessly? Is it the tight, warm harmonies, the pristine but organic production, or the half-lidded sensual allure tinged with melancholy that characterizes so much of the Nordic musical landscape? One can ponder the topic for hours, but the bottom line is that Ephemera songs such as "Balloons and Champagne," Act," "Hey (Nanana)," "Blame," "Bye," and the new European single "Girls Keep Secrets in the Strangest Ways" are beautiful, beautiful gems of modern pop-rock, the best that music in this genre can possibly get."
