KÆLAN MIKLA: Icelandic post-punks drop Italian horror-inspired “Draumadis” video, begin European tour! “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. GO HERE to see the dates.
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.”
