Karin Park comes to the UK

Swedish-born/Norway-residing artist Karin Park will be making her UK live debut on August 18 at The Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch, London. Though I know her primarily as a successful pop artist (as I'm sure is the same for many others), apparently she's decided to take a left-turn with her new, far more experimental album "Tiger dreams" which was recorded with producer Christoffer Berg (The Knife, Fever Ray, Little Dragon) and will be out in September. Check out the video for the title track here:
