Our final featured guests recorded live at RUV Radio in Iceland during the Iceland Airwaves festival have both received some success outside of their country. The quartet For A Minor Reflection create instrumental post-rock that appeal to fans of Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Mogwai, and even toured for a bit with Sigur Ros, while the singer/songwriter Hafdís Huld, a former vocalist of Icelandic electronic collective GusGus who now lives in England, has has supported popular UK acts like Paolo Nutini and Mika, has guested on Tricky’s latest album, and has lent her songs to several international commercials, including Mercedes Benz. Despite their differences, both bands share one important thing in common: an continued career trajectory that should bring them more and more fans worldwide.
