Norwegian musician Pål Moddi Knutsen, aka Moddi, recently announced he'll be releasing a live EP this Autumn, which caused a wave of excitement at 405HQ. Live at Jakob Church of Culture is set for a release on September 22nd via Propeller Recordings and its newest single, 'Poetry', is now available for you to listen/watch below (yeah, we're premiering it and it's great).

According to Moddi himself, the idea for a live EP appeared when he started to reverse his songwriting process. In the beginning his main challenge was to turn simple melodies into fully-dressed stage monsters, but for this release he was looking to flip it on its head: "All of a sudden, the songs sounded like they did the moment they were born," he explains. "Only the lyrics, the stories and the bare melodies that sparked the ideas were left."

Moddi has also announced details of a UK mini-tour for October, which includes a date at London's Old Queens Head. Check those dates out below:

  • 6th Oct – The Castle, Manchester
  • 7th Oct – The Boileroom, Guildford
  • 8th Oct – Komedia Studio Bar, Brighton
  • 9th Oct – The Old Queens Head, London
