When ’Airy Met Fairy (LU/IS)

“When ‘Airy Met Fairy with Kate Bush meeting Moloko,” said Thorsteinn Stephen, a founder of Iceland Airwaves, while the Japanese representative of Onbeat Japan enthusiastically described the voice of the singer and keyboardist Thorunn Egilsdottir as pure as a running water. WAMF is a joint project of various musicians and video makers who together create a minimalist and melancholic world of sounds and images where a delicate songwriting meets an electronic indie-pop. Their last year’s single Intoxicated was mastered in the famous Abbey Road Studios and its video depiction shows well why their work is so appealing: the contrast of male and female elements as well as the connection of the “dark” with the “sweet”.
