From Reykjavik, Iceland, Kælan Mikla is being hailed as one of the most exciting new prospects in the post-punk scene, marrying raw punk energy, thumping beats, and fairy-tale darkness. 

Fresh off a European tour with King Dude, and slots on Iceland Airwaves, The Cure's 40th anniversary show, Roadburn Festival, and more, the band has announced a European tour with Some Ember for early 2019.

"Icelandic darkwave-y post-punks Kælan Mikla... The trio has come up in a big way, notching an extensive run of European dates with King Dude and opening for The Cure on a few dates. 'Nótt eftir nótt' blends the mystical and euphoric with cold, hard synth and icy darkwave vibes; it's a digital ice sculpture, wrought in slick 'Blade Runner' tones and breathy, eerie vocals." 

"After triumphant sets at Roadburn 2018 and at the Robert Smith–curated Meltdown festival, Kælen Mikla are ready to offer up their debut full-length of searing post-punk/darkwave to the world... The Icelandic trio manages to conjure shadowy influences ranging from Clan of Xymox to the Cure to Tubeway Army on their forthcoming Nótt eftir nótt LP. It's a must for fans of dark music."

"Icelandic post-punk witches Kælan Mikla... are living up to the legacy of Kukl – Iceland’s most well known post-punk band, famously fronted by Björk... Ethereal synths and wailing vocals burn like a warm invocation."

"Iceland's Kælan Mikla... Raw punk but with a defining, dark, synth dancefloor vibe."
–Scene Point Blank

"Atmospheric and cinematic... Manages to recall Siouxsie and the Banshees and the classic 4AD Records sound simultaneously."
–The Joy of Violent Movement
