What Band got you into Icelandic music?

  • What Band got you into Icelandic music?

    Well for me it was Múm but I am sure it's different for everyone I heard múm about a year ago and still can't get enough of them.

    Listening to them got me into Sigur rós and Sea Bear.

    If anyone can advise any other good bands that would be great.

  • I've loved Bjork for a long time, but Sigur Ros really got me hooked into Icelandic music.

    The first Icelandic band I knew was Björk ... but then there was Sigur Rós!! Out of this world, actually ... maybe most down to earth
    Later on I learned to know Múm, Dikta and Ampop altough I can't find lots of music of Ampop and Dikta

    I never know what I want but I know when I'm low that I
    I need to be in the town where they know what I'm like and don't mind
  • I knew Björk, and had one album by her (liked it a lot, but wasn't really in love) then discovered Sigur Rós, and thought they were amazing. That got me into Amiina, Múm and the Album Leaf, and made me appreciate Björk a lot more.

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    Try to count electric sheep
    Sweet dream wishes you can keep
    How I hate the night.

    Björk of course...
    then Emiliana Torrini (i prefer Fisherman's Womam album)...and now i'm discovering Múm and i quite like it, then Sigur Rós and i really don't like it as much as others (any recommendations about this band?).
    oh, and i think that i like Gus Gus's album Polydistortion already and i only listened the samples...

  • Björk I think ... then Sigur and múm few years ago

  • Björk and then Sigur Rós.

  • sigur rós and múm

    Will the summer make good for all of our sins?
  • björk, múm, sigur rós, slowblow, mugison
