Jón Ólafsson & Futuregrapher’s Airwaves Highlights
 

Since the locals are more familiar with the goings-on at Airwaves, we asked two local artists what acts they’ll be doing when their not playing. Their names are Jón Ólafsson, a talented composer and pianist, and Árni Grétar (aka Futuregrapher), an electronic musician who emerged from the Weirdcore collective to co-found the Möller label in 2011. Here are their lists of things to look forward to.

Jón Ólafsson:

Grísalappalísa

“Raw and energetic rock’n’roll is always a pleasure to watch and Grísalappalísa has a great frontman and will deliver a great performance.”

Árstíðir

“They are a band I have been waiting to see live. I love their deep songs and am a sucker for good harmonies.”

Bistro Boy

“He makes the world a better place. Who doesn’t want to join that guy for some fun?”

Ensími

“The boys in Ensími are great musicians and I love what I’ve heard from their latest album.”

Red Barnett

“He is a friend of mine and a really talented musician in so many ways. He deserves a crowded house of people.”

Futuregrapher:

Möller Records Artists (e.g. Bistro Boy, Murya)

“The music on my label is my favorite music. I love what I do.”

GKR

“He is playing after me off venue. Young cat – really nice. Heard some stuff – but want to hear more.”

Döpur

“This is one of my favorite bands. Real. Beautiful. Dark.”

Emblah
