A good playlist is so important during a road trip! I like to choose music that fit landscapes.
For the supernatural beauty of Iceland, I prepared a mixtape with Icelandic musicians we already know, some new bands I discovered, and a few of my favorite bands.
This playlist will be your perfect co-pilot on the Route 1!
1. Sigur Ross – Lúppulagið
This band is one of the most internationally known band from Reykjavík. A mix of classical and minimalist music perfect to go with a look at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.
2. Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks (Bombay Bicycle Club Remix)
Of Monster and man is an indie folk band from Iceland. This remix brings a new way of listening to this top 10 song of 2013. On the way to the north to Akureyri, you’ll enjoy the road listening to this.
3. Emiliana Torrini – Big Jumps
Don’t you think this song is just perfect to wake up in your camping car beside the Skógar waterfall?
4. Apparat Organ Quartet – Romantika
This band form of one drummer and organists comes from Reykjavík, but I’d say this robot music makes a match with the Mars looking landscapes of Mývatn.
5. Eberg – Love Your Bum
I’d totally listen to that band while driving the winding roads of Iceland’s fjords.
6. Hafdís Huld – Queen Bee
Another camping song from an Icelandic singer! Okay, for me acoustic guitar is synonym of camping. I can’t help it.
7. Björk – All is Full of Love
She doesn’t need a presentation.
In Iceland, you can find her music everywhere. You can even buy her cds in convenience stores! Personally, I liked to listen to this song while looking at volcanic landscapes near Blue Lagoon.
8. Mugison – Þjóðarsálin
Why not listen to this Icelandic singer while drinking a Viking in a Reykjavík pub?
9. Arcade Fire – Ready To Start
Okay, I include a band from Montreal, but man this song must be added to any road trip playlist!
You tell me! What would you put on your road trip playlist to Iceland?
