Some of the more morose Reykjavík musicians will be crawling out of the shadows to put on a witchy Wednesday night at Gaukurinn. The “gloomy poetry-punk” trio of Kælan Mikla will headline, darkening the mood with their shrieky yet atmospheric sound. Melancholic noise project Döpur (“Sadness”) follows in the same vein. Electronic producer ULTRAORTHODOX will also be adding sharp and sinister sounds to the night, along with the semi-un-Googleable russian.girls, the experimental project of Guðlaugur Halldór Einarsson of Fufanu, that will deliver some narcotic vibes and smooth n’ sexy beats, which may seem relatively upbeat compared to the other acts of the night.
Catch Kælan Mikla, ULTRAORTHODOX, russian.girls, and Döpur at Gaukarinn at 20:oo. Admission is 1,000 ISK.
