This is not your usual combo: a mesmerising female vocalist from Iceland backed up by one of the leading bands of the Athenian indie scene!
‘Harmur Fuglsins’ (Icelandic for Sorrow of the Bird) is the arresting outcome of a collaboration infused by the strikingly contrasting geographical and artistic backgrounds of it’s creators: on the one hand FILM‘s nebulous dark-wave amalgamation of post-punk and electronic facets – a seasoned band with more than 10 years of experience, recent appearances at SPOT Festival, Eurosonic Noorderslag and Popkomm and support slots for The Cure, New Order, Iggy & the Stooges and The Flaming Lips – and on the other hand Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir, the soothing voice of Rökkurró, Iceland‘s finest folk-pop outfit and prime export with an upcoming performance at Ja Ja Ja, the Nordic Clubnight in London, and a second extensive European tour in the making.
Now add to the equation a sublime remix by reputable Icelandic lunatics FM Belfast and there you have it!
