Kjartan Holm on tour with Sigur Rós
Sigur Rós have asked For a Minor Reflection guitarist, Kjartan Holm, to take the place of Kjartan Sveinsson who has decided to take a break from touring.
For a Minor Reflection are writing new material but will take a break for the latter half of the year as the members nurture different projects. Kjartan’s first performance with Sigur Rós will be late July in USA.
Before the break you got one last chance to see them perform Friday 20 July at Factorý in Reykjavík.

Next stop: France!

We’re extremely stoked to come, and definitely hoping that you are as well. Visuals, loud music, good atmosphere – can’t go wrong (knock on wood…)

Music for “Rafmögnuð Náttúra”
We got asked to provide the music for the opening act of Reykjavik Winter Light Festival in February 2012. A unique experience of light and vision produced by complex light projections on the surface of Iceland’s largest church, Hallgrimskirkja. Here you can see a little bit of the amazing time lapse Rafmögnuð Náttúra by Marcos Zotes

Greetings everyone, and welcome to our new website! We’ve finally have a website nice enough to show to you, thanks to our great friend Björgvin, an Icelandic graphic designer and a cool guy.
We’re getting ready for our fifth Iceland Airwaves Festival, so we’re pretty stoked about that. We got home from LA and Seattle yesterday – that was to say the least – fantastic! We were playing at Culture Collide Festival in Los Angeles, held by Filter magazine, which was amazing!
Our recently recorded EP album, titled ‘EP’, is hitting the stores here in Iceland this week, so we’re working hard getting everything ready for that. It will then be released soon in USA and Europe we hope. If that get’s delayed there is always the store on our NEW WEBSITE (whoop whoop!)
So yeah, we’ve been busy lately, playing in US, China and Europe number of times this year. Also we’re heading back to the states to play in New York and then Canada, at the M For Montréal Festival in… Montréal! in November
Anyway guys… You’ve all been so amazing to help us out with our Pledge campaign which is ending now and supporting us by coming to our shows all over the world, and for that we can’t thank you enough – but this website is a start at least… Right? Be sure to check it out because we’re going to be putting all updates, shows and merch info in here.

We’re so happy, cause today we found our friends (sung in E major)…
Anyway, it’s raining here in Reykjavík but it’s alright because our Pledge campaign is doing so incredibly well and our recently finished tour was very successful, not to mention all the lovely people we got to know on our trip through the Baltic countries.
The gigs weren’t many but they were nevertheless amazing! We started off at Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary and that was just mind-blowing. Got to see many of our favorite bands and were honored to take part in this madness. Next stop was in Riga, Latvia. We played at a club called NABAKLAB and the crowd just gave us goosebumps! Wonderful night and a wonderful gig. After that we arrived in Tallinn, Estonia to perform at the Iceland Day, due to their 20 years of Estonia independence. And of course all the people who made this happen attended so that was quite an experience, and we had lots of fun.
The day started with a cosy acoustic gig in a small courtyard in the Old Town of Tallinn and it was PACKED! We did not expect this good attendance so we were definitely not disappointed. Sold lot of CD’s and everybody was really nice. Later that night we played at Von Krahl, the club that all the Icelandic acts performed at. Nice wine, nice food, nice people and one hell of a gig! It was just so surreal to be on a tour and all the gigs we’re so great. This is what makes you happy! This is what made our day. So once and for all; thank you guys for welcoming us. I have a feeling we’re coming again soon.
Here’s a little video from the Sziget Festival
But in other news you may have noticed that we’re doing a little Pledge campaign. It’s for the recordings of our new EP album which we’re going to release this fall and follow it through, in Europe and hopefully US also. It’s been going on for over a week now and BOOM; 93 pledges already, which does 88%! Thank you guys, we’re endlessly grateful for the support. We’re offering some exclusive and limited stuff, so please check it out at least! Here you can chcek out our Pledge Campaign
We are actually putting a final touch on the 4th and last song on the EP album as we speak, so I’d better get back to it before everything goes to hell.
Thanks for reading and supporting! Will be back with more updates soon!
