dj. flugvél og geimskip (Airplane and Spaceship) is a one girl’s project that draws influences from a thousand worlds. Defined as electronic horror¬music with a space twist, the music is a mix of playful beats, cool bass, catchy melodies and high pitched vocals. She sings about evil cats taking over the world, alien experiments, demons hiding in shadows and the weird world below the surface of the ocean. Her live performances are lively, colorful and poetic and her music deals with mysteries, dreams and dangers of the night.

On stage, dj. flugvél og geimskip is alone in the midst of keyboards and drum machines. Her concerts are like a strange blend of music, horror stories, poetry and theater. The mood is set by storytelling between songs, the use of incense, smoke, lights and a backdrop video. The audience is left feeling like they are in a vivid dream or have travelled to outer space.

dj. flugvél og geimskip just recently released her third album, Nótt á hafsbotni (Night at the Bottom of the Ocean) where the topic is the deep ocean. Her last album, Glamúr í geimnum (Glamour in Space) was all about the magic of space. In a way the deep ocean is similar to space, if not the same. Both are dark and exotic. Men know more about the moon then the deep ocean so one never knows what’s hiding there underneath. Nótt á hafsbotni is a heavier album then Glamúr í geimnum but the beats are more dancy and the melodies are influenced by Asian music, for example from India and Syria. Quotes
“Utterly charming and hugely entertaining, she could have taught The Knife a thing or two about staging and The Flaming Lips that spectacle can also work on an intimate scale.” The Arts Desk

“Her vocal register seem to suggest some kind of MiddleEastern musical influence, the electronics some oddball Jpop influence, and the project as a whole suggests she’s possibly picking up some kind of outer space influence. Memorable”. The 405

“We dip in and out of a few other shows, but our final treat of this year’s festival turns out to be DJ. Flugvél og Geimskip, a slip of a girl who plays bonkers cyborg space music of crazily high-pitched vocals, glitchy dancing and earsplitting electronics. It’s mystical, mischievous and entirely marvellous”. Clash

“…there’s always something rewarding about seeing someone do exactly what they want.” Dazed Digital
