They formed the ensemble Hlökk in the year 2015 and started out by performing Icelandic folk songs, improvisations and their own compositions along with old poetry. Now the ensemble has developed into the art collective Hlökk where they use different types of art forms, mainly music, visual arts and creative writing, to create new compositions.
