Amidst the breathtaking scenery, the largest city in Iceland also has some SoundCloud users that will take your breath away with their music. Today, we’re admiring Reykjavík, Iceland.
Sudden Weather Change
Sudden Weather Change first got together in art school, after realizing they had the same ambitions and goals when it came to music. Now, the band is getting ready to record another album and play some shows. Make sure to follow their SoundCloud page for more updates!
