Three new music vi­deos on Lands­bank­inn’s Ice­land Airwaves site

26 October 2022

We’re excited to premier three new music videos on our Iceland Airwaves site today. Since 2014, we have produced 38 music videos in collaboration with Icelandic musicians playing Iceland Airwaves. All in all, these videos have had 3.3 million views.

KUSK x Óviti

The music of Kolbrún Óskarsdóttir is dreamy electronic indie pop which she writes, produces and performs under the stage name KUSK. She and Hrannar Máni share a studio, work closely together and perform as the duo KUSK x ÓVITI.

Superserious

The band Superserious is made up of four friends from Garðabær. They came together to form the band in 2021 and won music competition Sykurmolinn that same year. Superserious plays melodic indie rock and takes itself very seriously indeed...

Una Torfa

Una Torfa has written music as long as she can remember. Relatable lyrics and catchy melodies characterise her work. She writes most of her songs on her guitar, sitting in her room with an open diary in front of her.

All of these artists play off venue at Landsbankinn, Austurstræti 11, on 5 November. The event starts at 14:00.

Baldvin Vernharðsson directs the videos.

Over a million views of the most popular video

The aim of this collaboration is to enable young musicians to produce videos to promote their music. The Bank pays all cost of production. We are very proud and excited about this project which we consider a resounding success.

To date, 28 artists have participated and we have released 38 videos. The videos have had 3.3 million views on Youtube. By far the most popular video is that of Kælan Mikla performing Næturblóm which has been played more than 1.1 million times.

Robust economic growth - purchasing power lags behind

Landsbankinn Economic Research forecasts 6.5% economic growth this year, record growth since 2007, only for considerable cooling to follow. Per the forecast, the policy rate will enter a rate-cutting cycle in the latter part of 2023 while inflation remains about 4% until 2025. Purchasing power looks set to contract by 0.4% this year but to pick up to the tune of 0.5% next year - a much slower increase than in recent year.
