Colour Me Impressed – Iðnó Part Two

Belgian outfit Girls In Hawaii ran a very tight ship in the packed Iðnó, regularly engaging with the crowd and getting them to swoon from side to side. During their performance, the indie-rock band showed that they had a mul...

The Inexhaustible Indie Venue – Iðnó pt.1

The former half of Iðnó’s Friday line-up was interesting. The night started promptly at eight with a set from Jóhann Kristinsson. His music is in many ways conventional indie rock with creative songwriting performed v...

Iceland Airwaves: Thursday – A Clash Magazine perspective

Words by Matthew Bennett & Joe Zadeh. Photo by Birta Rán. As Anglo-metropolitan muppets, our start in Iceland couldn’t have been much more of a birth of fire. Or more aptly; wind. Fierce wind that could slice your face l...

Miri at Iðnó by Ægir Freyr Birgisson

Good Work, Everyone!

Arriving early to something in Iceland is almost taboo. If it’s a dinner party, the host may find you rude, and if it’s a concert or other party, you may very well find that nobody else is there. That’s just the way that ...
