in NYC, the first live session of its kind for
the band. The session debuts today, Friday,
June 19th.

the band played four songs:  “Vid
Spilum Endalaust”, “Fljotavik”, “Inni Mer Syngur Vitleysingur”,

Meanwhile, the band’s handlers don’t want you to forget the
recently released Med sud í eyrum

photography and music. Given unprecedented access to the final stages of the
making and release of the group’s new album, photographer Eva Vermandel and film-maker Nicholas Abrahams created an intimate
and revealing portrait of the Icelandic quartet at work on their most immediate
record to date. The deluxe edition includes:
