SSTR is very happy to announce that rauður, grown close to us through the international girlsrockcampalliance, will play her first vienna concert. Together with the icelandic GRC stelpur rokka! she hosted almost 100 people from all over europe this summer, finally we can host her!

rauður is the stage name of Icelandic musician and producer Auður Viðarsdóttir. Formerly a keyboardist and singer of Nóra, a band active in Iceland’s music scene a few years back, she has now emerged as a solo artist. Since plugging in her first synthesizer as a teenager in an old garage in her hometown Reykjavík (a Roland SH-201 to be specific), she has slowly but surely developed her sound, merging electronic and acoustic elements into an ethereal soundscape. Perhaps in harmony with the sound of her own name, which is almost intangible for people who don’t speak Icelandic.

Her voice weaves together with eccentric beats and captivating melodies that take us through highs and lows, while her accompanying lyrics tend to reverberate with different types of disasters - sometimes pretty, sometimes crude - always fascinating.

rauður has recently relocated to Reykjavík, Iceland, after having lived in Malmö, Sweden, the past 4 years. In addition to her own musical endeavours, she has been a part of establishing the international collective Synth Babes.
