Fjokra is a multi-instrumentalist from Dublin. Drawing influences from an eclectic mix of genres, he founded the project in 2010 while living in Manchester.
Now based in London, over the past 18 months Fjokra has been gigging regularly with his eponymous band, building up a passionate fanbase. His music soon drew the attention of Kaiser Chiefs, who curated an album called 'Emerging Icons' which was released by Unsigned Band Review via Universal Music in May 2012. The album featured the 7 and a half mini epic 'Slyrex', selected by Kaiser Chiefs for its surprising changes that leave you wanting to "...find out what happens next".
After spending the majority of the summer rehearsing a new and improved set, the band are excited at the prospect of performing with two new members who have cemented the line-up and are more than ready to rise to the challenge of Fjokra's often complex and rich compositions.
Offstage and behind closed doors, Fjokra is constantly writing and recording new material, with an EP release to follow early 2013.
