Following on from their sold out show in 2016, yndi halda return to London to play two back-to-back sets – starting with an exclusive acoustic performance (their only for the whole tour), offering intimate new arrangements of their existing music – and ending in the classic yndi halda style, that we know and love.
The band formed in South-East Kent, UK as schoolmates, and released their debut record Enjoy Eternal Bliss in 2007 through Big Scary Monsters (UK & Europe), Burnt Toast Vinyl (USA) and XTAL Records (Japan). Though self-recorded (in a countryside barn in the Kentish countryside), the record took yndi halda across the world, seeing them tour across the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA, performing at prestigious venues and festivals across many of these stops.
After a long writing and recording period, 2016 saw the long-awaited release of latest full-length Under Summer. The album – at once subtle and joyous, hitting huge emotional peaks around moments of serene gentleness and heartbreaking sadness – was received as the right follow-up to Enjoy Eternal Bliss. A musical development from the band’s debut LP, the new album evidences a progression in songwriting, delivery and expression. It exhibits new scope and wider interests, full of closely-crafted arrangement, multi-part vocal harmonies and new compositional focuses.
Shortly after Under Summer, yndi halda released a companion piece titled A Sun-Coloured Shaker, made up of material thematically linked to the album, and toured the USA in support.
