He played his first gig at just 14 – in front of a biker gang – and writes songs inspired by cult TV shows like “Twin Peaks”. With his sparkling folk-pop and indie soul croon, MIKHAEL PASKALEV is the best thing to come out of Oslo since fjörds – and now he’s coming to Australia!
Secret Sounds are proud to announce that the charismatic singer/songwriter will be making his very first visit to our shores in March 2014.
Paskalev is a superstar in the making back home in Scandinavia... and five minutes listening to his sharp, summery pop you’ll quickly understand why. A hit in Norway upon its release and a triple j fave in Oz, ‘I Spy’ has been viewed over 1.6 million times on YouTube and Vimeo so far – not to mentioned lauded by sites like Hype Machine and The Huffington Post.
The part-Norwegian, part-Bulgarian hit SXSW in March, supported alt-J back in June, and now you can expect a full-length album in the months to come – but first up there’s the EP showcasing his love of everything from The Everly Brothers to Paul Simon, The Shins and The Mamas and the Papas.
Having just played Iceland’s Airwaves Music Festival and recently completed dates throughout the UK with the rockin’ Half Moon Run, Paskalev is set to bring his super catchy, pop with a twist to Australia this March. Prepare to fall in love with MIKHAEL PASKALEV!
Mikhael Paskalev’s I Spy EP is released digitally on Friday 15 November via Dew Process.
