That’s it. I think I’m taking a trip to Iceland within the next year. I need to visit the region that produces such wonderfully cinematic, expansive, and pensive music all rolled into one.
It’s time to dive into the fifth Made In Iceland release – a collection of eighteen diverse tracks from the cream of Iceland’s contemporary musical talent.
This very special collection proves that there is so much more to Icelandic music than first meets the ear: from the sonic spell-weaving capabilities of former Seabear artist Sóley to the bluesy tones of Lay Low, from the psych-rock excitement of Vintage Caravan to the transcendent neo-classical beauty of Olafur Arnalds, it is clear that Icelandic artists cannot be easily pigeonholed.
Made In Iceland V is the latest in the Made In Iceland compilation series, designed specifically to showcase the country’s myriad musical talent and bring it to the attention of the world. Thank you for listening.
