About Homebeat Presents : Parallel Lines || JFDR & Nicklas Paschburg
Homebeat are delighted to present a new series || Parallel Lines || our vehicle for unique, once off, double headline shows – combining two of our very favourite artists in one room, for one night only.
Kicking the series off in style – we are thrilled to welcome the incredible talents of Icelandic art -chanteuse and Homebeat favourite JFDR alongside an Irish debut for German contemporary pianist & composer Nicklas Pashburg for an evening of incredibly atmospheric music in The Sugar Club on Friday April 14th.
JFDR is the project of Icelandic experimental singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Jófríður Ákadóttir . As a 14 year old in Reykjavik, Ákadóttir began her musical career, exploring the vast universe of experimental music while retaining a massive heart at her core.
Over the past 12 years, Ákadóttir has released 12 records, including as a member of Pascal Pinon and Samaris, collaborated with renowned artists Ólafur Arnalds and Damien Rice, scored the award-winning Icelandic film Backyard Village, and garnered fansacross the world – including Björk, who cites Ákadóttir as an inspiration.
Composer and contemporary pianist Niklas Paschburg was born in Hamburg .
Following his first EP “Tuur mang Welten”, he released his debut album in 2018. ‘Oceanic’ was a moving trip full of both melancholy and energy; twelve instrumental songs between neo-classical, ambient and electronic music, inspired by nature.
This period was a defining experience for the young German composer, grown up as a pianist: “As a teenager I used to listen to Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, Hauschka and all that world, and my EP was influenced by those artists.
Paschburg's music articulates the traces remote environments have left in Niklas’ mind – something pressing is present in the music, its urgency roams searching for sources of energy and relief. All these impressions come from a piece of music which is both melancholic and positive, something to cradle us from anxieties, to make us both dance and run.
