eomyp2-7East Of My Youth is an Icelandic electro pop duo (Thelma Marín Jónsdóttir & Herdís Stefánsdóttir), formed in May 2015 in Reykjavík, Iceland. East Of My Youth plays melodic, electronic pop and draws its influences from various genres and moods. “Listening to East Of My Youth is as sensual and addictive as getting your tongue frozen to a glacier of pure honey” (Jajaja Music). Earlier this year they released their first single from the EP ‘Mother’ through an exclusive premiere on i-D magazine online and are set to release their debut EP in Iceland and Germany under their own label West of my Future later this year. East of my Youth is now ready for Iceland Airwaves and have been selected this year to be featured by the National bank of Iceland, one of Iceland Airwaves biggest sponsors. Other highlights include playing at Lido in Berlin, Sonar Reykjavik, SXSW as well as showcases in London including Jajaja Music and Soho House.

Conner Youngblood
Conner Youngblood

Conner Youngblood: From growing up in Dallas and eventually moving to Nashville, music has always been a big part of Conner’s life. Conner’s music focuses on the beauty in intricate instrumentation, simplicity in song structure, and mostly introspective lyrics. The focus on production and originality in instrumentation results in a sound much bigger than your typical singer / songwriter-Youngblood decidedly carves out his own niche.
