Hi. Happy 2012!
I like beginning a new year with making some changes. Radical ones if I can. So I decided to move back to Reykjavík. I had a lovely year in London but I felt like my time there was up. For now at least. I want to be here with my friends, my band and my family. So far it has been very good. I’ve got some new songs and new possibilities are opening up that look very promising. This will be good.
I’m very happy to say that the new video for my song “Mockingbird” is ready. It was directed by my Italian friend, the very talented Elisa Vendramin. I am very very happy with it. It’s hazy weirdness matches the song perfectly, I think. It’s premiering exclusively on the KEXP website and you can see it here.
In other video related news, Máni Sigfússon’s video for “River” just got nominated for the Northern Wave film festival award for best video. Nice job Máni!
I am also equally excited to tell you that I am going to be playing in Europe quite a lot in the next few months.
First me, Silla and Gummi(these guys) are going to Oslo for the By:Larm festival on feb. 16-18. This is going to be good. Funnily enough I have never been to Oslo before and I hear this festival is really really nice.
Then I’m going on a two week solo tour of Poland in feb-march. I’m really looking forward to that. I’ve only been to Poland once before and I loved it and now I get to travel all over the country and play loads of shows so this is going to be great.
