For Iceland Airwaves this year I was looking to try something different, so I approached Icelandic band RÃ¶kkurrÃ³ (whose keyboardist, Helga, lives in London and is involved in my Icelanders in London project) and suggested following them around the festivalÂ 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 TÃ³nar
The bandâ€™s first performance was at 12 TÃ³nar, the legendary record shop on SkÃ³lavÃ¶rÃ°ustigur in the centre of town.
Day 2: ÃÃ°nÃ³
Day 3: RÃS 2, Slippbarinn, Laundromat
At 8:30 am, back in their studio, Helga, Axel, SkÃºli and Hildur are preparing for a live perfomance on Icelandic radio station RÃS 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.
