Biography

There are at least two bands called Parachutes.
1. An Icelandic experimental music duo
2. A German post-hardcore band

1.) Parachutes (based in Reykjavik, Iceland) was the music of Alex Somers and Scott Alario, who took their name from the seeds of a dandelion flower. They began in 2003 with homemade bedroom recordings, and soon moved to recording songs in their kitchen, and expanded their live band to include six other members.

Alex and Scott play lots of different toys and instruments and often sample objects from around the house. Their music develops organically, with layers of acoustic instruments, old marching drums and gentle, hushed vocals.
The pair released two albums, both self-released, in handmade packaging. Somers and Alario also released an EP entitled Tree Roots in 2008, which was mixed by Jón Þór Birgisson (Sigur Rós) and featured the strings of Amiina. The duo announced in 2009 that they were no longer creating music together, and announced that all of their releases would be made available for free on their MySpace page. The band also released free remastered versions of their releases on their Bandcamp page in 2013.
