For Iceland Airwaves this year I was looking to try something different, so I approached Icelandic band Rökkurró (whose keyboardist, Helga, lives in London and is involved in my Icelanders in London project) and suggested following them around the festival with the aim of creating a photo diary of their Airwaves. They agreed without hesitation, and I ended up having a great time with these lovely people. Here is a small selection of photos from the week.
Day 1: 12 Tónar
The band’s first performance was at 12 Tónar, the legendary record shop on Skólavörðustigur in the centre of town.
Day 2: Íðnó
Day 3: RÁS 2, Slippbarinn, Laundromat
At 8:30 am, back in their studio, Helga, Axel, Skúli and Hildur are preparing for a live perfomance on Icelandic radio station RÁS 2.
The band have a new album out called ‘Innra’ which you can buy on iTunes here, and will be touring Europe in the new year. Full tour dates can be found on their website. You can see the video to my favourite track from the album, ‘Blue Skies’, below.
