Kristín Anna co-wrote and performed the music for Kjartansson’s stage art piece “Forever Love” with her twin sister Gyða Valtýsdóttir and the Dessner twin brothers of The National. They performed few of the songs from piece in the Barbican Theater last summer at a Bel-Air Glamour Soirée that coincided with Kjartansson ́s retrospective at the Barbican Art Center. She also performed few of her own songs on a grand piano and sang to raving reviews.

Later this year they will come out as a double album titled "I Must Be The Devil".
