IMG_20141106_150211The Canadian-Swedish band Thus Owls is here, and they are playing tonight at Iðnó at 23:20! The band is centred around the husband-wife duo Erika and Simon Angell, who had their honeymoon in Iceland! Heck, Simon is such a big Icelandophile that he even has a Reykjavík! tattoo.

Simon says the band plays “experimental and cinematic experimental psychedelic rock, but when we play shows, we don’t really stick to any script. We like to take chances, and try things out. Sometimes it doesn’t work, but it shows a human side. We aim to blow people away,” he says, with Erika adding “and ourselves!”

This is the fifth time Erika and Simon come to Iceland, but the first time they play here with Thus Owls. They also have a show on Friday at Kaffibarinn (off-venue) at 17:45.
