Published March 30, 2016

Austrian video journalists Sarah Brugner and Michael Luger of the music website THEY SHOOT MUSIC visited Iceland last winter when the days were shorter and the weather colder. During their stay, they created a video series about Icelandic artists and their connection to darkness.

GKR is the first artist to be portrayed in these series, discussing the Icelandic mid-winter crisis and performing his song ‘Morgunmatur’ at Bónus. CHECK IT.

Check out their other video where they looked into the Icelandic winter and its short days.
