Milkywhale is the collaboration between performer Melkorka Sigríður Magnúsdóttir and musician Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson (FM Belfast). They started working together in summer 2015 and immediately gained attention for their kinetic, entertaining concept performing at festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, Sónar Rvk and Roskilde Festival.Their live show dismantles the boundaries between a concert and a performance, pop songs and choreography.

“Milkywhale is a bowl of Skittles combined with eight double espressos, topped with the mania of receiving both a new puppy and a trampoline on Christmas morning. Imagine an aerobics instructor in a 1960’s quasi-futuristic space station jumpsuit, with a giant “M” in the background meant to hypnotise you — like Zoolander at the Mugatu compound. Or, if you’re old enough to remember, a Rainbow Brite doll from the 80’s come to life. ” The Reykjavik Grapevine
