Icelandic singer-songwriter Snorri Helgason is known for his gentle voice and seductive ballads, but when he returned to play live on KEXP during Iceland Airwaves this year, he went big and bold. Previously, we've featured Snorri in Iceland and even in Seattle, but for his set live at KEX hostel last month, he brought five of his friends, including members of múm, Hjaltalín, amiina, Moses Hightower and Tilbury, to flesh out the songs from his latest album, Autumn Skies.
