When we first started playing together
we discovered a new way of music making.
The way we interacted musically from the very first moment of playing made us realise that we had to keep getting to know each other and learn how to extend that feeling to an audience.
Since our first rehearsal in the end of November 2014, we’ve come a long way. We’ve gone through numerous projects, played over a 100 gigs together and lived in Iceland, the Netherlands and, currently, in Sweden.
But the way we feel when making music together has not changed
- except just getting more rewarding and delightful.
In August of 2017 we released our debut album, “Beint heim” (transl. Straight home). The project started in 2016 when we decided to do our first tour in Iceland - which we did during the summer of 2016.
We chose 8 jazz standards, Mikael arranged them for a duo setting and Marína wrote new Icelandic lyrics for each tune. Every song got a new feeling, a new story and a new sound. The project became very special to us so we decided to record the whole thing.
The album came out a year later and to our surprise and joy, it got nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards as “Album of the year” in the Jazz&Blues category.
Our next project has already been kicked off so stay tuned in 2019!
New music, new recordings, new adventures!
