Dikta (Iceland)

This week featuring Iceland

DIKTA

One of my favorite bands.  Dikta are an alternative four member band formed in Garðabær in 1999.  The band released their first album “Andartak” in 2002.  All three singles off this album got good radio play in Iceland.  In 2005 “Hunting for Happiness” was released.  All lyrics on this album are in English and the four singles received heavy airplay in Iceland.  Their third album, also with English lyrics, “Get it Together” was released in 2009.  The album was distributed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and had successful sales and airplay.  The song “Thank You” became the most played song in Icelandic history.  What a great band, their albums need more international recognition!
