moving to London

My moving to London probably only affected the practical side of my work. It’s a cosmopolitan city, with all the provisions and people I need. Reykjavik doesn’t. For the rest, the move meant at most the start of a new fase in my life : in the time before it - the Sugarcubes era - it always felt very safe and comfortable to make music with other people and not have to many responsa- bilities. But I’ve thrown all that overboard. I realised : It’s now or never. I make that solo-album now, or else I never will. I’m glad I did, because now I know I can never go back : it feels as safe and comfortable as the time with the Sugarcubes.
