Icelandic band Arstidir, Live in the KLCC Studios
The Icelandic band Arstidir is making their first tour through the United States, after becoming a sensation in their home country shortly after their formation in 2008, right after the stock market crash there. Undeterred by economic troubles, volcanic eruptions and so forth, they’ve found a worldwide audience for their music—including one song having more than four million views on YouTube. Arstidir’s music includes an emphasis on vocal harmony, and influences from classical to folk and rock. Before performing at the WOW Hall Eugene on Wednesday, July 22nd, they visited the KLCC studios for music and conversation.
