Iceland lies in the path of the North Atlantic Current, which makes its climate more temperate than would be expected for its latitude just south of the Arctic Circle. The weather can be notoriously variable. Often is said, if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. Or like Crowded House would say/sing 4 Seasons in 1 day.
The weather is like in many other places on earth the talk of the town. But the Icelandic artists put their expectations and frustrations in songs.
We made a selection:
“In the eye of the storm” from the album with the same name by Mono Town (2014)
