Myrkvi, CeaseTone and Andy Svarthol, three of the most exciting and up-and-coming indie bands of Iceland, will step on stage and perform at one of Iceland’s finest venue. This will be Myrkvi’s first concert in Iceland! The door opens at 20:30 and the evening starts at 21:00.
Myrkvi is Magnús Thorlacius’ moniker as a solo musician, whom some may recognise as the frontman of the band Vio. Myrkvi’s first single, ‘Sér um sig’, has been super well received and more singles are to follow soon. Myrkvi’s music evokes a warm feeling; acoustic, indie vibes are flavoured with jangly guitars and wholehearted melodies.
Ceasetone originates as the solo folk project of Hafsteinn Þráinsson in 2013, through the years the project’s sound and image as gone through drastic changes adding band members (Sólrún Mjöll – Drums, Jökull Brynjarsson – Bass) and influences ranging from indie-electronica,and shoegaze to neo classical, folk and jazz.
Ceasetone is known for immersive and highly energetic shows where everything is put on the line.
The debut album, Two Strangers, was released 2016 and garnered a nomination as album of the year at the Icelandic Music Awards along with ranking high on top lists in media around the world.
Finally in 2020 Ceasetone’s second album will see the light of day.
Andy Svarthol is an experimenal noise/dream pop band from Reykjavík, Iceland. The band was founded in 2016 and consists of brothers Egill and Bjarki Viðarsson.
While the bands musical direction and style is ever-changing, Andy Svarthol’s current sound ranges from upbeat pop, to experimental noise rock. They combine melodic keyboard playing with distinct guitar and synthesizer sounds to compliment the brothers’ harmonies.
They released their first full length album, Mörur, last year, which was recieved warmly and ended up on numerous end-of-year lists.
