Kaelan Mikla studio session Mary Mathis

Kaelan Mikla's first performance as a band didn't take place at a typical music venue, but rather a poetry slam. Laufey Soffia (vocals), Solveig Matthildur-Kristjansdottir (synthesizers) and Margret Rosa Doru-Harrysdottir (bass) may have thrown together the group for a poetry competition at their local library, but the trio quickly discovered their musical chemistry when they took home first place. The trio stopped by The Current studio to perform songs from their latest album and to chat with Mary Lucia.
