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 perhaps influenced by Berlin's carefree 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.
