Ateria is a band from Reykjavík, Iceland, consisting of sisters Ása and Eir and their cousin, Fönn. Ateria won Músíktilraunir, The Icelandic Music Experiments in March 2018, but the band was formed in the fall of 2017. The band members have all studied classical music for many years and entwine different musical styles and genres into their songs. Their music is therefore very diverse, but has been described as folk-goth. Many have remarked upon their lyrics, which are all in Icelandic. They discuss unusual subjects and have a complex figurative language. The name ‘Ateria’ was not a random choice. It is taken from the latin name of the eider duck, Somateria mollissima, which is a common interest of all the band members.
