Dream Team? Without a doubt a valid question on first sight, given the fact that one of Iceland’s most popular musicians (Sóley Stefánsdóttir), a whizz-kid (Sindri Már Sigfússon) and a veteran of Icelandic electronic music (Örvar Smárason) join to work on a common album.
You won’t believe it, but finally we can talk about springtime. Sitting lakeside in the evening, shorts and t-shirt and a beer, what else? Maybe a fitting piece of music, fluffy and lightly? Well, we can help you out! And you can trust us, it’s a recommendation you better take into account: exactly in a […]
Today is the day! Vök’s first full album “Figure” is finally there. Vök’s history started with Margrét Rán (vocals/guitar/keyboard) and Andri Már (sax/synth) in early 2013 by competing at the “Battle of the Bands-esque” competition Músíktilraunir in Iceland, which they won (Previously winners were: Mammút, Of Monsters and Men, Samaris).

It´s hart to find the right words for all the experiences and beautiful impressions during Iceland Airwaves 2015. Sometimes I just close my eyes and dreaming of being back at the line to Húrra with Gull in my hand, waiting for the next gig while the rain falls down on me and the wind whistles […]
