KÆLAN MIKLA is an Icelandic dark-wave trio based in Reykjavik who was personally invited by Robert Smith of The Cure to perform at his curated Meltdown Festival in 2018. They recently completed a 30-date tour in Europe, in support of their Artoffact Records release Nótt eftir nótt. Nótt eftir nótt was a press favourite upon its release, making Revolver Magazine's best of 2018 list, and also garnering accolades from Cvlt Nation, Decibel Magazine, and The Wire, as well as a cover feature in Distorted Sound. The band was nominated for album of the year at the Iceland Music Awards.
ABOUT NÓTT EFTIR NÓTT - quotes by the artists
“You lie in bed, stuck between nightmares and reality. You drown in the shadows around you that start to grow bigger and move closer to you.
That is Nótt eftir nótt. The title song of our album, co-written with our friend Barði from BangGang. The video itself was recorded in one of the few woods we have here around Reykjavík and is inspired by The Blair Witch Project. But the main theme of this album is the night, secrets that lurk in the shadows, the witching hour and that strange place between dreams and reality.
This song is the peak of the album, where everything comes together and we hear the night whispering to us: "nótt eftir nótt eftir nótt, þú sefur ekki..." (translation: "night after night after night, you cannot sleep...")” - Kælan Mikla
“It was such a pleasure to work with the talented Kælan Mikla. As a vampire I also come from a similar universe. We come from 20 hours of darkness and hide when there is light. My goth roots are embraced to the fullest when working with those pure talents.” - Barði Jóhannsson
