Undir Köldum Norðurljósum
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for a statement piece. Difficult to categorize, the music is undeniably dark and beautiful. Like a great film, you'll find yourself discovering new things with each listen. While not the most complex, the packaging is absolutely stunning and perfectly complements the textures of the music.
Available on 1st press cold blue wax with gatefold sleeve with commissioned designs by Førtifem. Triple lyric insert. Icy blue foil stamped cover.
Bursting with the raw punk spirit and whimsical Icelandic visions which have fueled Kælan Mikla from the very start, Undir Köldum Norðurljósum takes the band’s unmistakable sound and presents it in a manner even more lush and engrossing than before. Cinematic layers of synth, ethereal vocals sung in their native tongue, spine-chilling screams, driving bass and programmed drums combine to pull the listener deeper than ever into Kælan Mikla’s world — a place of folklore and fairytales, magic and mysticism.
Undir Köldum Norðurljósum features a guest appearance by Alcest, with whom Kælan Mikla toured Europe in early 2020.
The album artwork was created by graphic design duo Førtifem, known for their covers, posters, and merch for artists such as Emperor, Slipknot, Rammstein, and Carpenter Brut.
