KEXP at Sundlaugin with Hjaltalín

Catch our full KEXP performance

The last time we performed on Iceland Airwaves, KEXP shot a full performance of us playing in the cozy Sundlaugin studio, just outside Reykjavík. It is now ready, and you can watch it here.

Hjaltalín one of “Icelandic Indie bands you don’t want to miss”!

We don’t want to be too full of ourselves, but we would be lying if we didn’t admit to liking seeing this!

Hraunið TV Series

New song, Anyways, released for an Icelandic TV series

We have released a new song, called “Everything is Gonna be Like Everything Will Ever Be (Anyways)”, and you can listen to it here:

It’s the title song of the new Icelandic crime TV series: Hraunið (The Lava Field). We were fortunate to work with the great american producer and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily on this one. Enjoy!

Days of Gray Soundtrack by Hjaltalín

Days of Gray wins the Icelandic Music Awards

Our very own soundtrack to the movie Days of Gray, won the award for the album of the year in the 2013 Icelandic Music Awards, in the “other” category. We want to thank the filmmakers involved for a nice cooperation – you can find more information about the film here:

Our album, Enter 4, was also nominated in the Pop/Rock category. We actually got a bunch of other nominations, and we’re especially proud that the engineer for Enter 4, Sveinn Helgi Halldórsson, won the award for the engineer of the year. Last but not least, our very own Sigríður Thorlacius was awarded the prize for being the female singer of the year!
