SONG PICK: Auður – 3D:: Both Eyes on You

Last week, Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Auður released the highly atmospheric and totally intriguing “3D::Both Eyes on You”. Auðunn Lúthersson, who goes by the artist name Auður (pronounced ‘author’), blends R&B elements with electronic sounds together with his alluringly soft vocals and creates something new and honestly, rather hypnotic and irresistible! Lyricially, “3D” details the frustrations of Skype sex and[…]

NEW MUSIC: Dream Wife – EP01

Dream Wife is a three piece from London with one Icelandic member, which makes them eligible for our Airwaves Top Pick list of local artists.

NEW TRACK: Crystal Breaks – Bring Me Home

Listening to “Bring Me Home” one can hear Crystal Breaks‘ influences like New Order, The Cure or Portishead because the track brings you right back to the best indie music of the 80s and 90s. Crystal Breaks are scheduled to play Iceland Airwaves and that is how I came across them[…]

SONG PICK: East Of My Youth – Mother

This one is a little older, but Iceland Airwaves is approaching quickly and the electronic duo East Of My Youth is surly on our must see list. “Mother”, their second song, is a glittering bright synth pop piece, after the darker, more intense “Only Lover”. An EP with hopefully more[…]

NEW TRACK: Konni Kass – Time

“Time” by Konni Kass is highly addictive because of the track’s tranquil flow, the delicate melody and its simply irresistible beauty. Konni Kass are a quartet calling the Faroe Islands their home, playing this year’s Iceland Airwaves and that’s how we found out about them in the first place. Listen to the alluring “Time” which[…]
