Vicky Icelandic band music

I met Eygló Scheving (singer) and Ástrós (bass) from Vicky rock band Iceland  on the opening of the festival 21st. June 2018

Vicky is an Icelandic melodic rock band (they can be hard as well). The members are 3 girls from Hafnarfjörður and one guy (the drummer). The band VÖK is also from this neighbourhood (read the article)

A successful rock band of girls is not a surprise in Iceland, a country  that was the first of having a President woman of the nation, a lesbian First Minister and a current First Minister. Sigurjón Kjartansson, singer of HAM, said Katrín Jakobsdóttir might become a writer of crime novels in the future (read the interview)

Vicky band Iceland a funny start

The origin of the Icelandic band Vicky: four girls met to watch their favourite TV serial Vicky Pollard. After drinking some beers and glasses of wine, they decided to form a band music. Ástrós chose the bass and started classes next day because had no idea how to play it

In 2008, the English media were very curious in that Vicky Pollard band because it´s a British serial, so they cut down the name and became just Vicky (the girls wanted to be on the spotlight, but just for their music)

Las costumbres de los islandeses (pulsa)

The music band  Vicky got very important reviews, for example from the prestigious magazine Rolling Stone, and they did tours in America, Asia and Europe. Besides Secret Solstice, they have played in Iceland Airwaves as well

Eygló is a platinum blonde girl with freckles on the nose and shaped eyes, she looks like just a normal Icelandic girl, but when she is on the stage, she is wild like a blue fox

She lived in Brazil and speaks Portuguese. She likes listening to all kind of music

Ástrós has long dark hair, blue eyes and wears a cool leather black jacket. He says openly she is not interested in Hip Hop music (the mainstream in Iceland, read the article of Agent Fresco) and recommends the Icelandic movie Metalhead (video below)

What do you like from Spain?

They like of course the food and weather. Ástrós is going to Barcelona at the end of August, but she is not going to the beach, there are some more important things to do. If you see her, just stop her and asked for an autograph, she is very nice
