kaelanmikla notteftirnottIcelandic post-punk trio KÆLAN MIKLA returns for the group's third album, Nótt eftir nótt. The nine track album will be released on November 9 via Artoffact Records. The band will embark on a European tour with King Dude on September 20, full dates are below. Pre-order the album, and listen to first track Hvernig kemst ég upp? here: https://kaelanmikla.bandcamp.com/album/n-tt-eftir-n-tt

Topping a year that catapulted the band onto stages shared with the likes of The Cure and Placebo, Nótt eftir nótt is KÆLAN MIKLA at their most confident - and their most deadly. It's been five years since Margrét Rósa, Laufey Soffia, and Sólveig Matthildur formed the band in Reykjavík, and after several successful tours and having dominated high-profiles stages, as well as releasing two critically-acclaimed albums, KÆLAN MIKLA has truly brought their A-game.

Starting off quietly with a creepy, gothed-out and ethereal intro, Nótt eftir nótt erupts with post-punk brilliance and synthlines that harken back to the bad old days of the Batcave, big hair, and Egyptian-inspired eye-liner. Tracks like Hvernig kemst ég upp? fuse melody with melancholy, while the band goes for the big goth dance number on Skuggadans, succeeding with glorious ease. Near the end of Nótt eftir nótt, when you've already ingested a healthy dose of Diamanda Galas meets The Birthday Party, the title track, produced by popular Icelandic electronic wizard Bang Gang, is a perfect distillation of KÆLAN MIKLA in 2018.

Although their lyrics are written and performed in their native Icelandic, they add a vivid and clear layer to the message of Nótt eftir nótt. Listeners are beckoned into a world of nightmares crossed with fairy tales, moonlit landscapes, and hypnotic shadows.

Hot on the heels of shows at Roadburn, Robert Smith's Meltdown Festival, and The Cure's 40th Anniversary shows, as well as the upcoming tour supporting King Dude, KÆLAN MIKLA are set to take their place amongst the darkest aural poets on the world stage.
