Further Information

The title of the album, Rætur meaning Roots, refers to the deep connection humans have with mother nature and the society they are brought up in. Work on the album started in 2012 when Fanney put together the band Kjass with Anna Gréta Sigurðardóttir, Mikael Máni Ásmundsson, Birgir Steinn Theodorsson and Óskar Kjartansson.

With the first songs being recorded in 2012 it was only until 2017 that the last songs were recorded, this time with Anna Gréta and Tómas R. Einarsson. The album will be released on vinyl and will only be available in 500 copies
