Volcano Victims

Gaui (Guðjón Rúnar Emilsson), Icelandic born and raised had been writing songs for a long time in his home town Reykjavik but kept it a secret to the public.
It wasn't until he moved to Berlin he met like-minded people and started to play his music with them as Volcano Victims.
Volcano Victims' music was deeply influenced by Iceland's dark and cold winters. Gaui's first EP is drowned in melancholia and gentle melodies. "Iceland isn't only about long and dark winters. The summers are bright and full of optimism. Writing melancholic songs just came easier to me". Since then his music has shifted to more uplifting tunes like "Revolutionary Resolution" and "Summer" perhaps influenced by Berlin's care free summers. "The dark undertones are always there. I don't like to be stuck to one type of mood or genre." It's these different soundscapes and colours that makes Volcano Victims a memorable tapas-like experience.
