The seventh edition in the Made in Iceland compilation series by Iceland Music Export is finally here, and boy are we excited! We can't believe it's already been seven years since the first album but the prosperity and broad variety in the melting pot that is Icelandic music, never fails to amaze us. The compilation series main objective has always been to promote and profile the latest and most exciting sounds to emerge from the kaleidoscopic and ever-evolving Icelandic music scene and this time the compilation features no less than 18 different artists.
The songs vary in genres and style, everything between intense underground rock from Kimono, bluesy folk tones of Lay Low to the overgrown power pop of Sin Fang. The compilation proves it once again an impossible task to put Icelandic music in a box.

Sin Fang's "Young Boys" evokes Icelandic life with it's lyrics while Kimono's "Sprectres" is just a straight-up rockin tune.
