Dikta is a young, four-piece indie rock band from Iceland, formed in 1999, and soon gaining a large following for their unique, heavy yet soulful haunting sound.

In 2006, Dikta recorded their album, "Hunting For Happiness". Produced by Ace of the recently reunited UK band Skunk Anansie and released on the Sugarcubes-owned label, Smekkleysa/Bad Taste, it quickly became one of Iceland's best selling rock albums, with three of its singles reaching the top of the charts.

Their recent singles, "Just Getting Started" and "Let Go" both made it to #1 in the Icelandic radio charts, and after playing clubs and festivals in London, Copenhagen, Los Angeles and New York, where they shared stages with bands like We Are Scientists, Ra Ra Riot, CSS and Vampire Weekend, Dikta is now back in the studio to record material for their next album

"Dikta is musical magic ... one of the most intriguing albums of the year, a forerunner in the race for top honors ..."
DecoyMusic.com, USA 2006

"The sultry tones of lead singer Haukur's vocals are striking and could capture the attention of the female population of the planet ... a potential classic."
Salvo Magazine, UK 2007
