Luuk Honey One of the top bands of Iceland currently, this album brings out all of the raw energy of their glacial volcanic homeland. At times, subtle, beautiful and harmonious, and simultaneously contrasting in it's darker, brooding, and riveting sounds of textural washes, like the Northern Lights billowing across a dark sky.
Keep an eye on these gentle rockers, they are bound for great heights!
