ROP: Which musicians would you list as an influence for you guys?

Jökull Júlíusson: The list is very long but we can mention the obvious choices: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Ray Charles, The Doors and so on.

ROP: How was your tour with Vance Joy? What was the most memorable part of the tour?

JJ: It was really great. We had a lot of fun gigs and he has some great fans who come to the shows. We had a very funny night in Dallas where some people had too much of our famous Icelandic ‘Brennivin’ to drink.

ROP: Was 2015 your first time doing SXSW? How did you enjoy your time in Austin?

JJ: Yes. We had just moved to the US and we played eight shows at SXSW. We live in Austin so that made it easier. Great festival and great experience.

ROP: Do you currently have another album in production?

JJ: Yes we will have an album out this year. We are currently recording in Nashville.

ROP: What mindset is the best for you when getting ideas for new songs? Is it easier to write in English or another language or does it depend on the mood?

JJ: I write in English, that’s what seems to be natural for me for some reason. It’s different for me with each song and the writing process but I do like to get away sometimes and write. I have written quite a few songs for example in Spain on vacations.

ROP: Have you played in Philadelphia before? Is there anything you look forward to doing while you’re in the city of you have time?

We have played once, last summer at a local festival that some of David’s (drummer) family were arranging. Great time. I think we’re all just looking forward to getting to know the city and see more of it.

ROP: How would you describe your live performances in one word?

JJ: Dynamic.
