About us

Reykjavíkurdætur is a female hip-hop-group based in Reykjavík. They count 10 members and are recognized for their dynamic lyrics and energetic stage-performance. They have made a big impact on the music scene in Iceland since they first stepped on the scene in 2013. It wasn’t long until they started to get attention from abroad and after a powerful performance at Iceland Airwaves festival in 2015, they have been performing at festivals all over the continent among them FiB in Spain, Trans Musicales in France, and Roskilde festival in Denmark. The group consists of women from different streams of life, but what unites them is their passion for music, rap, and lyrical flow.

They work as a collective, but also as smaller units within the group. The core of their ideology is to rebel against conservative misogynistic values of modern society, this shines clearly through their lyrics: the empowerment of women standing united; that women can occupy societal space. At the end of the day, they are a large group of women who, on their own terms, enjoy going on stage, giving the audience and each other all they got. Reykjavíkurdætur has received great publicity for tearing down walls and shock their fellow citizens, and therefore plowing the soil for the seeds of coming generations of female rappesses.

Placed together onstage, the physicality and expressive confidence of the group’s live set up is inspirational, while the material marries Stateside hip-hop – think Gucci Mane, Kanye, Kendrick – to something that feels distinctly Icelandic.

-Clash

Reykjavikurdaetur are the female hip hop crew immense in both size and force. Rapping about everything from politics to anal sex, they penned the Icelandic Slut Walk anthem and plan on continuing their rightful reign over the Icelandic hip hop scene, disrupting what they find to still be a very male dominated world.

-ID Magazine

Everyone and their grandmother pulled out their mobile phones and snapped away with reckless abandon as the thirteen girls on stage caroused cooly, vaped away, and threw some fierce love and hate at the crowd.

-The Line of Best Fit

They've told the Icelandic Prime Minister to "suck my pussy" live on TV, written songs about anal sex, and performed on stage in nude underwear.

-Vice

Reykjavík's Daughter is a saucy hip-hop crew of 13 Icelandic women — 12 rappers and a programmer, decked out for bounce and pose in illusion-of-nude bodystockings. The visual effect is a Viking-maiden spin on the Wu-Tang Clan, with mics handed back and forth as the women trade verses and shout choruses, mostly in Icelandic.
