We are in the process of packing.

Three years ago we came to Merkigil in Eyrarbakki to live, write music and breathe after a 3 month journey across the US. We were going to stay for two months in Merkigil for it was an short lease artist residency. But only weeks into the stay we were offered to overtake the lease and live here. Since this house is so amazing and has it’s own stage in the living room, we decided to live here and host home concerts. Now after about 70 concerts we are packing our things and heading to Europe. We are taking our car via ship and are going to drive and celebrate our new album on the roads of Europe :) So very exciting!!! But at the same time the melancholy slumbers around our cardboard boxes and empty spaces, mourning and end of an era as Rachel in Friends would put it… We are so grateful for the support we have had from the good people of Eyrarbakki. We leave here feeling blessed and loved by the time spent here with these great folks.
