KIRA KIRA is Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir, a composer and music producer from Iceland.
As a founding member of Kitchen Motors, a mischievous label and collective based on experiments in electronic music and arts run in collaboration with Johann Johannson and Hilmar Jensson, she continually breaks boundaries between forms and genres through a repertoire that includes compositions for theatre, film, dance and art installations – as well as playful multi-disciplinary productions that exceed her work as merely a composer. Kira Kira sprang from this collective and to this day works with Kitchen Motors’ ethos at heart – a spirit of playfulness, exploring the relationship between experimental music and visual arts, collaborating with a plethora of various artists.

“Kira Kira is a constant enigma – extremely hard to define and almost impossible to anticipate.” – Ben Frost
“Every successive listen, every press of the repeat button, will strip back yet another layer. It’s a grinding process made sweeter by the knowledge that exploring this album is to better understand something very precious. Like something beautiful that doesn’t want to be loved.” – Sputnik Music
“A fine and intricate album, crammed with innovation and unexpected moments. The myriad of sounds comes together superbly. Worthy of a gold medal.” – The Reykjavik Grapevine
