Hafdis Huld is a true one-off. Born in Reykjavik, she started singing with iconic nine-piece collective Gus Gus when she was just 15 years old and spent the rest of her teens touring the world. On leaving the band, she collaborated with FC Kahuna, co-writing their singles ‘Hayling’ and ‘Machine Says Yes’. Elsewhere she worked on projects with dance producers Ewan Pearson and Tom Middleton.

Hafdis’ debut solo album, Dirty Paper Cup was written with enviably high profile collaborators including Chris Corner from Sneaker Pimps, Pascal Gabriel, Jim Abbiss and others. Produced by Neill MacColl and Boo Hewerdine, the album has sold in more than 20 countries around the world and won ‘Best Pop Album of the Year’ at the 2007 Icelandic Music Awards. It received national radio play on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music (where Phil Jupitus described her as the "most mental guest" ever to have graced his radio program).

Hafdis spent much of 2007 and 2008 touring with her band and played at Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Festival, The Big Chill and Camden Crawl in the UK, Hultsfred in Sweden, Airwaves in Iceland, Spot Festival in Denmark, Les Femmes S'en Melent and Europavox in France and The Midnight Sun Festival in the Czech Republic.
