The Icelandic band KVIKA (English: magma) is releasing their third album today, 10.6.2021. It's called "The River".
The origin of the name comes from three different sources:
1) A reference to two of the songs from the album,
2) The river Vistula in Krakow where some of the songs were composed and
3) The final recordings in a holiday home by the river Blanda in Iceland. It can be said that the name merged into one river from three brooks.
