Iceland Airwaves 2021

Downtown Reykjavík Nov 3-6

Karina are Karin Mäkiranta & Helmi Tikkanen, an indie-folk duo from Helsinki.
Karina have released their second album ‘2’ via GEMS on 3rd July 2020. It follows their Nordic Music Prize-nominated and critically acclaimed debut ‘Karina’, which was championed by a handful of tastemakers in the UK including BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, and more, and set them up on a European tour supporting Beirut. Their music is a stunning blend of ethereal vocals and intricate instrumentation, with lyrical themes that deal with “self-acceptance, going to therapy, letting go of ego, facing fears, breaking habits and making up one’s mind”.

‘2’ is predominantly an indie-folk record with sonic influences that range from Julia Holter to Cocteau Twins. Each of the tracks on the record has a wonderfully rich atmosphere that is made from very few moving parts. Their voices carry so much weight that the music can swing through a range of different genres and sounds but remains succinct and unified.
