WINNERS :: LUCIANBLOMKAMP & The Walking Who – FBi’s Northern Lights 2014
September 2nd 2014
It’s been a tough few weeks deciding on the winners of our biggest Northern Lights competition to date, and we’re thrilled to announce Melbourne’s LUCIANBLOMKAMP (solo) and Sydney’s The Walking Who (band) as our 2014 winners!
They’ll be heading to Reykjavik in November to play showcases at Iceland Airwaves, one of the world’s finest music festivals in one of its most breathtaking cities. They join the official 2014 lineup alongside the likes of The Knife, Future Islands, How To Dress Well, The War On Drugs, Kelela, Adult Jazz and many more. Lucian and The Walking Who will also be spending time in the studio, meeting and networking with international industry professionals and taking in the magical scenery of Iceland.
Get familiar with these guys, there are big things to come…
LUCIANBLOMKAMP is a 20 year-old beat-maker and producer from Melbourne. His unique style draws from an eclectic range of influences, from jazz and hip hop to darkwave electronica. With his debut album Post Nature just released on Sydney-based Yes Please Records, the buzz around this young producer is undeniable. The future is clearly very bright for LUCIANBLOMKAMP; it feels like the perfect time for this experience. We’re thrilled to be taking him to Reykjavik.
THE WALKING WHO (band)
NSW South Coast psychedelic trio The Walking Who have been steadily making a name for themselves with their warm, captivating tunes and impressive run of live shows – sharing stages with The Drones, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Growlers, Dune Rates and more. One of FBi’s unsigned artists of the month (October 2013), it’s fair to say that these boys have earned a spot in our hearts and we can’t wait to watch their Icelandic adventure unfold. Get acquainted with them with this beautiful little behind-the-scenes video teaser from the making of their forthcoming new record.
Iceland Airwaves runs from November 5 – 9.
