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.
Almost exactly four years have passed, since Sigur Rós played their last concert at Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt. Some festival shows were following, but beside that, there was no other way to experience the trio around front man Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson in Germany. Now on 14.10.2017, the Icelanders returned to the same ground as in […]
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 […]

On his previous indie and folk orientated three records, electronic elements played if anything then just a very minor part in his music. The opposite on his new […]

A long time of waiting is finally over. Just a few minutes ago, one of our Iceland favourites, the promising Indie rock band CeaseTone released their full length debut! And we were incredibly lucky to be able to listen to it already a few days before it was sent out into the world now.
