Im From Barcelona Announce Two UK Shows

Im From Barcelona Announce Two UK Shows

Swedish pop sensations, I’m From Barcelona, are returning to the UK for two shows later this month.

The 29-strong collective will play London’s ULU on January 24 and Manchester’s Academy 3 on January 25.

Last time the group- fronted by Emanuel Lundgren- visited the UK, they made a bit of an impact. They played a tiny instore gig at Rough Trade Records that spilled out in to the street, and they also broke the record for the amount of people recording in the studio, when they performed live for BBC 6 Music. They also stole the show with their cheeriness when they played at the End of the Road festival in Dorset the same weekend.

I’m From Barcelona’s debut album “Let Me Introduce My Friends” is available now on Interpop/ Mute Records.
