Kælan Mikla Live at Orange 'Ear at the 14th August 8pm
We met Kælan Mikla downtown Reykjavík on our OE2iceland-tour at the “Gaukurinn” Bar where we recorded the new song “Kalt” in a splendid afternoon session. In August they will be on a small Europe tour. We are proud to present Kælan Mikla Live at Orange ‘Ear at the 14th of August. Concert start at 8pm. facebook/event
Kælan Mikla are known for their dark melancholic sound, most of the songs consisting only of heavy bass, drums and screams with some softer, melodic synth parts in-between. The bands lyrics focus on inner confusion and their intimidating stage performance, often including performance art of some sort, is bound to leave the crowd in a melancholic trance.
Kælan Mikla is a three-piece gloomy poetry punk band from Reykjavík. These three art-punkers are the spirit of riot grrl incarnate in Iceland. They are doing something truly unique and subversive with their raucous and disarming yet captivating form of poetry goth rock. It’s not always as serious as it sounds but it’s always beautiful, bolstered by a strong DIY aesthetic and attitude. They have an album due to come out this year. (RX)
Hún grætur milli húsasunda
tárin renna milli múrsteina.
Hún vonar að vorið vakni
sorgin upp rakni.
Afhverju er alltaf kalt?
Afhverju er ljósið svart?
Antimony - Purity Control | Music video shot at 20.05.2015 Reykjavík | #OE2iceland
We met Antimony, a newly-created coldwave band from Iceland, shortly after the release of their first promising EP “OVA”. The multilayer electronics, topped by the facile vocals and deep bass line intriguingly catch us immediately. To our surprise RX Beckett (vocals), Birgir Sigurjón Birgisson (bass) and Sigurður Angantýsson (electronics and production) showed up with a brand new song at the shooting. Now we are proud to present: Purity Control.
