The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines down on Reykjavik and highlights the beautifully majestic single, “Broken Glass,” from Icelandic duo East of My Youth. The new song follows the release of their well received self-titled debut EP, which was released in January through the band’s own label West Of My Future LTD.
East Of My Youth have been crafting their brand of ethereal electro-pop since 2015 when high school friends Herdís Stefánsdóttir and Thelma Marín Jónsdóttiran joined their artistic forces together to create a sound that captures the dramatic beauty of Iceland’s sweeping glacier and volcanic landscape. I’d call the duo a musical version of Vatnajökull and Grímsvötn.
With the band already making a name for themselves on the festival circuit, playing high-profile sets at Iceland Airwaves, Sonar Reykjavik, and SXSW in Austin, TX, it is only a matter of time before East of My Youth erupt on to the scene. You should monitor this duo on your seismograph.
