Q&A with Vök (#Airwaves2018)

Today, Reykjavik’s music festival Iceland Airwaves released their official app, on which attendees can favorite the bands they want to experience live.

Q&A with EinarIndra (#Airwaves2018)

Two years ago, EinarIndra basically kickstarted Iceland Airwaves for us, taking us under his spell with his show, the first one we saw in Reykjavik. There is something very particular and mesmerizing about the Icelandic brand of indie electronic music, and EinarIndra’s is especially moving. We met EinarIndra again on[…]

Q&A with Holy Nothing (#Airwaves18)

A music festival like Iceland Airwaves allows for unexpected music discoveries yet also holds room for long(er) time favorites. In fall 2015, Holy Nothing released their exquisite electro pop album “Hypertext”, which made us want to see them live when they played SXSW the following year. And while there was no[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Flights and hotel room are booked, more than 200 Icelandic and international acts are announced, and so anticipation for Iceland Airwaves 2018 is getting in full gear. We start our pre-coverage with one of our favorite Icelandic bands, the fabulous Mammút, who we didn’t see on their home turf yet[…]

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).[…]
