Another Icelandic band whose debut we are eagerly looking forward to is Mr. Silla, a "supergroup" of sorts, led by Sigurlaug Gísladóttir (a.k.a. Silla) of of múm, and members of Sin Fang, amiina, Seabear, Tilbury and other great bands. We caught them in their studio a year ago, when they had just a few songs, but during Iceland Airwaves '12, Silla and the band performed a blazing full set live at KEX Hostel on Day 1 of our broadcast. So, like their song "One Step," they're closer now then ever to producing their much anticipated debut. Check out the impassioned set now:
