NXNE DAY#3: Útidúr @ The Gladstone Ballroom

Útidúr (pronounced: ooh! - detour) are this spectacular twelve piece from Iceland who basically act out (with their instruments) grandiose and theatrical orchestral pop.
It's CRAZY COOL and the most surprising(ly good) performance I caught this year.
Obviously everyone from Iceland is awesome and good at everything - just ask the Mighty Ducks - and this band is no exception. It looked as if everything they did was with ease and the music just floated out of their fingers and mouths like beautiful butterflies emerging from their electric cocoons.

Well played, Iceland. Well played.
