Moddi announces debut album

By | Published on Monday 31 January 2011


The friendly-sounding Pål Moddi Knutsen, or just Moddi as he’s more commonly known, will release his debut album here in the UK on Propeller Recordings on 18 Apr.

The album, called ‘Floriography’, and which saw Moddi work with Björk and Kate Nash producer Valgeir Sigurðsson, was released in his native Norway last year. He’s enjoyed attention further afield by touring Europe with Angus & Julia Stone.

You can watch the rather charming accompanying video for album track ‘Magpie Eggs’ here. Meanwhile, Moddi will be appearing live in London on three occasions in February and March, starting at Angel’s The Wilmington Arms on 13 Feb, followed by two nights at The Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell in 28 and 29 Mar.
