It has been an ongoing dream of Utts’, along with two of her best friends Faraz and Raoul, to one day go to Iceland. They have been talking about it since high school and they are constantly more and more intrigued not only by the place but also by the music. We all know Björk and the band Sigur Rós and many of us have watched their film Heima but with no disrespect to them, THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER BANDS.

Kai Müller (if you understand German, his blog is great) and Marcel Krüger went to Iceland in 2010 and combined “photographs, interviews and words” to create Sonic Iceland. Kai and Marcel do an amazing job of interviewing various Icelandic bands and documenting their adventure. Their writing is honest and amusing and their photographs are (ace).

Serious Feather goes “Beyond Sigur Rós” and explores these hidden treasures in their 30 minute documentary film.

Watch the film here.

Not only does Iceland produce great music, they also do tremendous things to support artists. For example, Gogoyoko strives to create fair play in music by giving the artists more power in the sales of their work.

This is another amazing Iceland project that was originally found by Raoul. Such a beautiful place, so much inspiration.
