Antimony is a coldwave band from Reykjavík, Iceland made up of RX Beckett (vocals), Birgir Sigurjón Birgisson (bass) and Sigurður Angantýsson (electronics and production). Together they combine elements of early 80s synthpop, gloomy Lynchian sexuality and sci-fi horror with androgynous DIY aesthetics.
Kælan Mikla is a three-piece poetry-punk band from Reykjavík that is becoming darker and more refined, delving into the no-wave genre and adding more instruments to their sound. The band consists of three close friends that perform original poetry any way they please, breathing a fresh breeze of avant-garde into the Icelandic music scene. The band was formed after winning first place in a poetry slam competition held by the Reykjavík City Library in January 2013. They have since made the local festival circuit, as well as gone on European tours of their own. Kælan Mikla’s style is best characterised by a dark melancholic sound, filled with heavy thumping bass, loud drums, melodic synth segments, and mercurial vocals that go from spoken poetry to full-on screams. Their lyrics focus on topics such as inner turmoil, and their stage presence is at times intimidating to newcomers, but brings regulars into an introspective and melancholic trance.

Bellstop!…alternative folk rock or not! it is most definitely something raw and something true? well at least from runar’s and elin’s point of view. those two have been playing 2gether for years and living 2gether as well. a life full of adventure and risk from traveling around china and asia for years with the mutual goal: living life and seeking freedom within. things haven’t always worked towards the direction of true artistry and have gotten pretty messy at times. playing a full show for an audience of 1 up to playing unexpectedly in front of thousands. not to mention all those “lost in translation” concerts like playing in a chinese shampoo commercial thinking it was just another gig. well, they do have good hair those two “shamans” from china to iceland airwaves in fall 2010 they began playing,loving&living in iceland’s sizzling capital, reykjavik where they started working on their album” Karma” which is out! Karma tells the story of runar and elin’s life for the past 3 years! nothing is held back, it’s all there…you just have to listen for it carefully….more than once some might hear it and others won’t, it’s all up2U. Bellstop is a band, it’s a couple of individuals, it’s a carnies experience from iceland that doesnt belong in a box…for now we call it Folk&Roll!
