Kælan Mikla is a darkwave post-punk band from Iceland. Their latest release Undir Köldum Norðurljósum has been on rotation in my collection ever since it came out in 2021. Imagine a cross between bands like New Order, Bauhaus, L.A. Witch, FKA Twigs, and Dream Wife. I know that’s a lot to keep up with, but their music speaks for itself. The Cure’s Robert Smith has even called himself a fan.
I’ve been impatiently waiting for a North American tour since they came on my radar, and it’s finally here! The trio will be on a 29-date tour with Artoffact label mates KANGA opening. They’ll be at Icehouse in Minneapolis on Saturday, October 8th. They are perfect for a Saturday night in October.
Grab your tickets here and join me for what is sure to be an incredible night!
