Frøkedal makes her UK debut

at The Waiting Room, London

She has been known and admired on Norway’s indie rock scene for years, but guitar-strumming songstress and Sunnhordland native Anne Lise Frøkedal has thus far never performed live in the UK. That’s about to change, as at long last she takes to the London stage, at – appropriately enough, you might say – The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington.


Having turned heads as frontwoman, songwriter and guitarist for indie outfits Dharma, then Harrys Gym and I Was A King, Frøkedal has been honing her craft for the best part of a decade.

Now launching herself as a solo artist with the release of her new single ‘I See You’ (taken from her forthcoming EP and now available on Soundcloud), she’s garnering comparisons with the likes Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac for her melodious brand of heartfelt, pop-spiked folk. “I realised that whatever I think I write, I write pop songs,” she has said, and it’s certainly true that, for all the wistful reverie of her music, there’s something inescapably catchy and eminently listenable woven into the notes.

Frøkedal has spent the bulk of her career working with other musicians, whether performing in bands or working with other artists in different genres (she has collaborated with the likes of Robyn Hitchcock, Sivert Høyem and electronic duo Ost & Kjex). It’s about time she had her moment as an individual musician. ‘I See You’, she says. Go see her.
