Kælan Mikla kicks off 2019 with a new music video and a European tour.
Stream the new video, for the song "Draumadís," here:
Video director Logi Hilmarsson states: “Kaelan Mikla have a very clear vision of their image and a ton of fun ideas that can be incorporated into videos. I tried to keep up with them and bring some of my concepts to create a short surreal narrative set in a place where occult rituals are used as technology and human sacrifice has unusual results. It is a dark fantasy, stylistically inspired by ’60s and ’70s Italian Horror, but really I think it is mostly a comedy.”
"Draumadís" appears on the band's acclaimed Nótt eftir nótt album, released in November on Artoffact Records.

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. The band wowed the world in 2018 with slots on Iceland Airwaves, The Cure's 40th anniversary show, and Roadburn Festival, and a European tour supporting King Dude. A headlining European tour with Some Ember starts tonight in Berlin.

"Theirs is a world where sweeping eerie soundscapes, irresistible post-punk hooks and dance beats couple with angelic voices and blood-curdling shrieks."
"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."
"Ethereal synths and wailing vocals burn like a warm invocation."
