We are betting on Iceland to become the new nation to watch in the Eurovision Song Contest. Here, Sigga, Beta and Elín Eyþórsdóttir, the three sisters behind Systur, reveal their inspirations, their love for the 1970s, and the privilege to compete for Iceland as a family

In this year's Eurovision Song Contest, all eyes are on Iceland. After the international phenomenon of Daði Freyr's success with 2020's Think About Things and 2021's 10 Years, the tiny but mighty nation has placed itself on the map as the one-to-watch in music.


Systur, a trio of sisters Beta, Sigga and Elín Eyþórsdóttir, are ready to take on the torch and potentially lead Iceland to its first ever win. So, what inspires this band to fight for the Euro throne? "Love and kindness." Here, Beta, Sigga, and Elín tell all about their experience with the contest, their individual styles as sisters, and the true meaning behind their now-classic sonic contribution Með hækkandi sól.
