Red Balloon Music are proud to present two full-band sets from their favourite acts of the moment – Megan Dixon Hood and Ålesund!
An epic, power house night of music from two exciting, up and coming UK artists. Blending alt pop, ethereal atmospherics and soaring vocals, this gig is for fans of striking female artists such as Kate Bush and Florence + the Machine.
Megan Dixon Hood is an independent artist taking inspiration from folklore, mythology, nature, and human beings. Exploring otherworldly and alternative genres, her music is written from deep, dark, enchanted woods, hinting at the fairytale world of Florence + the Machine and AURORA.
Together with her band, Megan creates forest pop soundscapes that gather you up and immerse you in cinematic storytelling. Having released several singles over the past couple of years, Megan Dixon Hood is set to release her debut album in early 2023, inviting listeners into a world of magic and mystery.
“An artist that soaks her sonics in the dark and brooding, Megan Dixon Hood is an artist creating something more than just music.” – Earmilk
This is dark mystical electro pop with an art pop heart that transitions between dramatic, slow burning dynamics and huge gusts of pure passion and power. – When The Horn Blows
After a busy summer of gigs in 2022 Ålesund jumped straight into the studio and ran with all the energy of playing live on stage, pouring it into their next recording. The new EP is a full throttle, up-tempo and cathartic offering that has drawn on the energetic moments of the bands past tunes and ramped it up with high octane guitar riffs, driving bass lines and tom heavy drums, their sound always recognisable with Alba’s soaring and striking vocals bursting through. If their last EP was all about the joy of song writing and connecting in a time of isolation, this EP is all about the joy of performing and bringing the live sound to an audience.
“Ålesund poured so much warmth and feeling into both the songs and their connection with the audience, their energy and engagement were almost tangible.” – The Everyday Magazine
