One of the best ways to find new music is through bands you love. I found Like Spinning through The Staves, who posted one of her videos on their Facebook page. Like Spinning is essentially the work of singer and songwriter Kari Kamrud Jahnsen, who comes from Oslo. The band now live in East London after starting in Liverpool in 2009 where Kari studied at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.
Their sound is woozy dreamy alternative pop music with lots of female harmonies and floating guitar lines. Think Warpaint, Lanterns on the Lake and CocoRosie. They released an EP at the start of 2011, a self titled record which you can find on Bandcamp. They have just released a second single ‘Forces/My Window’. All the songs are exquisitely made and produced, I think they have the potential to make a really beautiful album. The band play Bristol Communion on the 5th May and The Book Club in Shoreditch, London on March 17th.
