Kaelan Mikla : Manadans - CD Kaelan Mikla : Manadans - CD  Ref: 22047 Tapped by The Cure frontman Robert Smith to play his edition of Meltdown Festival would be a pretty amazing feat, but for Kælan Mikla , it's just another day. Indeed the death-rock turned post-punk trio from the heart of Reykjavik has been turning heads since they formed five years ago in 2013.

It all started after the three ( Margrét Rósa Dóru-Harrysdóttir on bass, Laufey Soffia taking lead vocals, screeches, and devastating death-rock laments, and Sólveig Matthildur Kristjánsdóttir on keys) won a poetry slam competition at the City of Reykjavik library, featuring Sólveig's writing. Then, in the summer of 2014, before synthesizers, before any electronic instruments really, they cranked out a purely raw bass, drum, and vocals session of death rock gems that are electrifying and, frankly, gorgeous.

With Alison MacNeil ( Kimono ) producing, the band completed its first album, Mánadans , only to have it shelved. Their same-titled album on FABRIKA/Dead Scarlet Records – completely different to this one – was finally released in July 2016 and was an instant and massive success, with both the Vinyl and CD prints being sold out extremely fast (both have been re-printed since). Since then, Kælan Mikla have been invited to Roadburn and Iceland Airwaves Festivals. They will soon embark on their first tour of South America. And they've been invited to tour with Drab Majesty and King Dude . And then there's Robert Smith, who came knocking and extolling the band's youthful energy and poetic darkness – and invited them to appear at the massive THE CURE 40 TH ANNIVERSARY Show in London in July!

The band's long lost death-rock masterpiece Mánadans now gets a deluxe worldwide issue on CD and vinyl. The album is fully remastered and includes the bonus track “Reykjavík til staðar”, as well as the demo version of their hit song “Kalt”.
