About Hraun (English: Lava)
"Astarsaga ur fjöllunum"
Hraun prefer to call their musical genre "mood swing", as it reflects the ebb and flow of singer/songwriter Svavar Knútur's emotional tides. Ranging from melancholy to alcohol-fuelled rage, Hraun travel far and wide in their quest to explore the human condition.
