having already become an underground icon as the lead singer of dream-punk legends milkhouse, katrín helga ólafsdóttir has been exploring new territory with her solo-project, k.óla. going for a slightly more electronic approach than before, her expertly composed songs sound fresher than ever – and the visual side is also quite interesting.
katrín studies composition at iceland‘s university of the arts and it is clear that her wide spectrum of influences results in a strange but intreaguing mix of genres and ideas – blending poppy song structures with classical instrumentation and experimental electronic soundscapes.
k.óla released her first record independently in the summer of 2017, titled „glasmanía“, but her first full-length release through post-dreifing, is set to happen this winter. she‘s also one of the few artists featured on both drullumall compilations, and has done two colorful music videos to this date.
