moving to London

I’m well aware of making a sacrifice by leaving Iceland, because I’m so much from there. But I’ve been on a little personal mission, which is my album. Basically, the money, studio and equipment was all here, not in Iceland.

When I first left home, I carried all sorts of stupid stuff around with me in boxes, but I gradually learnt to give that up. I realised that the best thing is to have, when you go somewhere, is what you’re wearing. One book and you’re laughing. Especially when you’re trying to move from one country to another. You have to start again.
