Sigríður Eir Zophoniasardóttir and Jóhanna Vala Höskuldsdóttir, who are Hljómsveitin Eva (The band Eva), has played together for two and a half years.

They wrote the song “Ég sé þig” especially for Söngvakeppnin, becaus Sigga has always had a dream of participating in the contest. As all their other songs, this one is also “about something that there are no songs about”; the refugee crisis that is happening in Europe at the moment.

The song will be performed in English if it should win the ticket to Stockholm.



I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
