I have really enjoyed GKR at the last two Airwaves and I'm certainly looking forward to catching his shows again this year. But before that, those of us in London have the chance to see him on Thursday this week when he plays as part of the always excellent JaJaJa night at The Lexington.
GKR is an excellent Iceandic-language rapper with bags and bags of on-stage passion, charisma and damned infectious bounciness. Oh, and some pretty bright clothing too. It's pretty hard to imagine not enjoying seeing him play - last year, at his biggest show, in Harpa there was a roomfull of beaming faces with eyes fixed on this young kid on stage in bright yellow shorts and t-shirt. During his young career he's won accolades at home and got great attention abroad.
I spoke to him 2 years ago, but now with two days to go until his debut London show, and a week and a day until Iceland Airwaves 2017, it was time for a second chat with Gaukur.
