Sigur Rós together with Bjork are synonymous with most people’s perception of Icelandic music. Well, i don’t really fault them for that as they are arguable among the greatest musical exports to have emerge out of Iceland onto the world stage.
But there’s more beyond Jonsi and this short by nonprofit collective Serious Feather explores just that in a bid to showcase the diverse and dynamic indie music scene in Iceland.
Filmed beautifully in full HD, the documentary features interviews with the who’s who of Iceland’s music scene.
You can also look forward to terrific performance from personal favorites- Berndsen andSeabear among a slew of others including Lára Rúnars, Bloodgroup, For A Minor Reflection, Sykur, Severed Crotch and DJ Musician.
Pity they didn’t feature my other favorite Icelandic band Múm but still pretty awesome!
