Sólstafir live review – London, Islington Assembly Hall
Venue: London, Islington Assembly Hall
Islington Assembly Hall gets immersed in a modern classic, live with Sólstafir
From the moment they step onstage, it’s clear there’s something bewitching and otherworldly about Sólstafir. The Icelanders are performing their superb 2014 album Ótta in full – potentially risky for such recent material, but it’s a trip best experienced as a whole, the slow, menacing coaxing of Lágnaetti immediately sweeping you into their world.
