Emerging from her involvement with influential bands such as múm and Mice parade, Sigurlaug Gísladóttir, aka Mr. Silla, has blossomed into a creative force of reckoning. Matched only by a truly honest and evocative stage presence, the musically transcendentebb and flow of Mr. Silla is as breathtaking as it is life giving. The often ethereal sonic landscapes explored on her self-titled debut album, released on 12 tónar, is even more proof of what the creative hatchery of Iceland has to offer.
