Iceland’s Hjaltalín Plays on Diesel’s Website

The song “Traffic Music” by Icelandic band Hjaltalín will be included in a play list on the official website of clothing label Diesel in the coming days. Then, users will be able to download a podcast version of the play list.

According to Fréttabladid, the last Diesel play list was downloaded 1.5 million times and therefore Hjaltalín’s inclusion is considered a great promotion for the band and its latest album Sleepdrunk Seasons.

“It sounds terrific; we’re thrilled,” commented one of Hjaltalín’s lead singers Sigrídur Thorlacius.

Users will be able to rate the songs on the play list and Diesel will finance a music video for the band whose song receives the highest approval rating.
