Created with Icelandic Music Awards nominated artist/producer Stefan Orn Gunnlaugsson (IKORNI), Revolution in the Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter takes you on an 18 song sonic journey through the heart and soul of Elbowville, where a story unfolds of three brothers living in perfect harmony, until unexpected conflict arises and shakes Elbowville to its core.
