ISSUE 03 IS OUT ON TODAY!! Our new issue celebrates the darkness of winter and introduces you to Icelandic post-rock’s variety, since it’s the best music to fill gloomy days with atmosphere during this season. This time, we’re focusing on Stafrænn Hákon, GlerAkur, Katla., VAR and, of course, Sigur Rós. Additionally, we present Elíza Newman and Mosi as rays of sunshine in the middle of winter. The third issue of Reykjavík On Stage also reflects the best way to experience music and a great way to beat the winter blues – live shows. We’ve all been counting the days until the upcoming Icelandic shows. Let’s start with the fever of Iceland Airwaves Music Festival caught by the lens of Marcus Getta. Then we got involved in waiting for Kaleo to come on stage in Russia and Sólstafir in Poland and Germany, where Falk-Hagen Bernshausen followed the band step by step. But we didn’t just explore those music feasts in the midst of winter. Juliette Rowland also presented the first very special edition of Norður og niður festival in pictures. In addition, we had a peek on the other side of the fence of live performances as Egill Björnsson of VAR shared his story of touring Japan. It wouldn’t happen without music of other wonderful artists such as: Epic Rain, FM Belfast, Kira Kira, MIMRA, Pink Street Boys, aYia, Bára Gísladóttir, SEINT and WARMLAND.
