Enjoy Icelandic music curated by Iceland Airwaves featuring LÓN, Axel Flóvent, and RAKEL.
One of Iceland's most beloved artists, Valdimar Guðmundsson (better known as the frontman of 6-piece rock and roll band Valdimar), explores his folk roots along with powerhouse performers Ásgeir Aðalsteinsson and Ómar Guðjónsson in new Americana project LÓN.
Singer-songwriter Axel Flóvent is an alternative/indie artist from Iceland. His newest album, You Stay by the Sea, is inspired by the search for a place to feel at peace. It taps into the DIY spirit of his earliest recordings but with a sense of refinement and newfound wisdom.
Joining Axel is RAKEL, who has performed with various artists throughout the years, such as Axel, Lón, ZAAR, and Salóme Katrín. She's now debuting her music with the EP Nothing Ever Changes with two singles, Keeping me Awake and Our Favourite Line.
