Írafár

Írafár is an Icelandic pop group formed in 1998 in Reykjavík. Its name means "Chaotic state" or "Confusion upon waking" in Icelandic.

In the summer of 2000 Írafár released their first single, "Hvar er eg?" ("Where Am I?"). They released another two singles the following year. After signing a contract with Skifan, a major Icelandic music label, they released their first album, Allt sem eg sé ("Everything I See") in November 2002. The album sold quickly and was certified platinum.

In 2003, Írafár member Birgitta Haukdal was voted Star of the Year and Pop Artist of the Year. She was then chosen to represent Icelandic public radio and television in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Riga, Latvia. She sang the song "Open your heart", originally titled "Segðu Allt mer" ("Tell Me Everything"), and finished eighth in the competition. Haukdal tried unsuccessfully to represent Iceland in Eurovision again in 2006 with the song "Mynd Af Þér" ("Picture from You").
