Jambinai were the sensation of K-Music 2015 – their stunning set was called ‘thrilling, unexpected and perfectly controlled’ by The Guardian, after The Times said ‘Jambinai impressed with their genre-blurring sound, applying traditional Korean instruments to eruptive drone-rock reminiscent of Sonic Youth’ After the show, they signed to Simon Raymonde’s Bella Union label, who have just released their A Hermitage album – back to The Guardian, who nailed it in one sentence. ‘An enthralling post-rock group – imagine Godspeed You! Black Emperor melded with strange and wonderful traditional instruments’.
Now, they are back to play one special show in the perfect setting of Oslo Hackney.
