In Iceland I’m quite happy just doing what I did before I moved, which was being like a housewife, doing several jobs, cooking with friends, getting pissed, going to the tundra and driving around in the wildnerness. Writing songs is a way of trying to connect you with your surroundings, I guess, and plug yourself in somehow and it’s almost like you don’t have to in Iceland.
