Iceland Airwaves Preview: Kælan Mikla (watch)

Dark and enigmatic, cool and vigorous, Kælan Mikla is a full-fledged female trio of punk power. They might also be one of the only bands with two published poetry books under their belts. Made up of singer Laufey Soffía Þórsdóttir, bass player Margrét Rósa Dóru-Harrysdóttir and drummer Sólveig Matthildur Kristjánsdóttir, Kælan Mikla formed in 2013 after winning first place in a Reykjavik slam poetry contest. The band made their Iceland Airwaves debut in 2014 and released their self-titled debut album in May 2016.

Kælan Mikla will be playing on Wednesday, November 2 at 11:30 p.m. at the Idnó Theatre during Iceland Airwaves 2016.
