London via Norway 5-piece Eye Emma Jedi are set to release their debut U.K release in the form of single ‘Sin’ via London based boutique label Killing Moon Ltd. on 20th August 2012.
After gracing the airwaves and festival stages in their native Norway, including their first three singles (Crucified, Lights & Brother) being play-listed on national radio for a combined total of 50 weeks – half of which came before their first ever live show. The now London based Norwegian outfit are setting their sights further afield, starting with their debut U.K release in the form of single ‘Sin’ and appearances at this year’s NASS and Boardmasters festivals.
Produced and recorded by themselves, ‘Sin’ perfectly encapsulates Eye Emma Jedi’s indie-pop sound; a sound that specialises in folding shimmering pop melodies with cutting, intricate indie-rock guitar lines that form powerful anthems. Their energy smites you with its wide musical spectre that varies from danceable, progressive indie rock to the most alluring elements of j-pop and post-hardcore.
“An exciting new guitar band who play an energetic, in-your-face brand of indie rock – the type that made us fall in love with the genre in the first place” – Laissez Faire Club
“Norway may not be world-renowned as the spiritual home of hook-laden indie, but if up-and-coming London-based outfit Eye Emma Jedi have anything to say about it, that could all change in the not-too-distant future” – Shout4Music
THE DIVERS (LIVE) – 9.15PM
VOLUNTEERS (LIVE) – 8.30PM

Killing Moon Records was set up as an independent record label in 2008 after a guy basically got fed up of taking shit from the labels that he worked for. We’re extremely proud to have worked with some amazing bands in the past, and very much looking forward to some exciting releases in the very near future.
The Akira ethos is to promote nothing but good music, booking great up and coming artists or those on the cusp of bigger things. Akira is a filter for new music.
This is going to be a big one, we look forward to seeing you there!
