After graduating from Hamrahlíð College in Reykjavik – where she sang in the world-famous choir directed by Þorgerður Ingólfsdóttir, of which Björk and members of Sigur Rós are among former members – she planned to go to Vienna to continue her studies, but after becoming disillusioned with the classical world, she decided to take a different path and move abroad to work. After this, she spent her time in London and New York as they traveled extensively.
While Eydís cites her home country of Iceland as a huge influence on her music, she is also deeply inspired by artists such as Philip Glass and Thom Yorke. But the real driving force behind her melancholic arrangements are her own emotions, and the complete freedom to explore those feelings musically as she pleases. All this while also trying to break free from mainstream forms of music.
