Q&A with Hildur (#Airwaves2018)

During our first Airwaves experience two years ago, it took a few days to become acclimatized with the unique vibe of the festival. But by Saturday, we had it down and ventured out to Bryggjan Brugghús, a micro brewery and brunch joint to see Hildur. It was an experience you[…]

Q&A with Berndsen (#Airwaves2018)

Many contemporary bands create 80s-tinged pop music but a lot of them shy away from the label and would not wear it on their sleeves. Not so Icelandic musician David Berndsen who creates his beautiful blend of (analog) synth-pop under the moniker Berndsen, and is not afraid to talk about his[…]

Q&A with Axel Flóvent (#Airwaves2018)

Next up in our Iceland Airwaves 2018 pre-coverage is singer/songwriter Axel Flóvent, whom we are looking forward to seeing live this year. Born in the small and remote fishing village Husavik, Iceland, Axel Flovent now lives in Brighton, U.K. We reached out to Axel and he was kind enough to provide answers[…]

SXSW 2018: Q&A with GIRL SKIN

Welcoming GIRL SKIN to the Official glamglare SXSW Showcase feels like going full circle, because I remember vividly when I first listened to GIRL SKIN’s songs on SoundCloud, being completely enthralled, and consequently trying to book them for an upcoming glamglare show. Literally in the air, Sid confirmed his participation[…]

SXSW 2018: Q&A with I Am Snow Angel

A little less than two years ago, we wrote about I Am Snow Angel, the solo project of New York artist Julie Kathryn that “her brand of electronic music is airy and effortless, and her vocals enter your mind like a whisper in a dream”, which still holds true, and so[…]

SXSW 2018: Q&A with Pretty City

Pretty City are the only SXSW alumni on our showcase, having played the festival in 2016 for the first time, and returning again this year for a second time. Two years ago was also when we instantly became friends with Drew Schapper (drums), Hugh Matthew (vocals, guitar), and Johnny Rock (guitar, vocals).[…]

SXSW 2018: Q&A with Emme Woods

With six acts on our Official SXSW Showcase, only one will be absolutely new to us: the fabulous Emme Woods, who is making the trip over the pond from Glasgow, Scotland together with her four band members Jamie Logie (guitar), Neil McKenzie (trumpet, bass), Katie Doyle (keys) and Gary Gilmour (drums). Listening to[…]

SXSW 2018: Q&A with The Lulls

In July 2016, I heard about The Lulls for the very first time and was immediately taken by their laid back, intelligent but also delicate sound. We premiered “Bruise”, the first single from their debut album “Island of Daughters, and at some point, Rutger Rosenborg and Ryan Miller mentioned that[…]
