Iceland Airwaves: Hjaltalin and FM Belfast

Continuing our broadcast of exclusive sessions recorded live in Iceland and shipped to KEXP for you hear on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole the very same day: two more great bands showing the diversity and communality of Rrrreykjavik music. First up, Hjaltalín, who create sublime orchestral pop that has been the highlight of many festival goers’ experience at Iceland Airwaves. Last night, following their session for KEXP at RUV Radio, Hjaltalín performed with a 20-something piece orchestra conducted by Daníel Bjarnason in a filled-to-capacity church (more about that later!). Following that, friends of Hjaltalín, FM Belfast, a four-piece, played danceable electropop that would appeal to fans of both Junior Senior and !!!.
