heida with glassesHeidatrubador is Heiða Eiríksdóttir. She’s a chanteuse, singer-songwriter and guitarist making all sorts of music experiments, but also all sorts of other music. Expect the unexpected: folk, lo-fi, alternative, pop, rock, and indie. She’s best known as Heiða í Unun’, but now she’s the frontlady of electro-rockband Hellvar, and forms a duo with Bertel Ólafsson called ‘Ruddinn’. In the past she was a member of Útúrdúr and honoured guest member of Texas Jesús.

On the fanpage of the band Hellvar you can read the full story:

This year Heiða went to Berlin to write and record some music. Yesterday she released the first single “Life and Dream”, a track from the upcoming album “Fast”. Mixed and mastered by wizard Curver Thoroddsen (of Ghostigital fame).
