Iceland (1997 – present)

múm (pronounced [muːm], “moom”) is an experimental electronic group from Iceland whose music is characterized by soft vocals, eccentric beats and colorful effects, and a variety of traditional and unconventional instruments.

Originally a duo, the band has expanded and contracted in the 12 years of being and has counted 15 - 20 people along the way.

The band was formed in 1997 by original members Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, their first release was a split 10” with the girl-band Spúnk and saw light in the summer of ‘98. They were joined a year later by twin sisters Gyða and Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir and released two albums as quartet. Following a number of collaborative projects, the group’s celebrated debut album Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today Is OK (reissued by Morr Music in October 2005) gained a wealth of glowing press and widespread praise. A remix project, Please Smile My Noise Bleed, also released on the Morr Music label in November 2001.

In 2002, after the release of Finally We Are No One and the extensive first world tour, Gyða left the band to return to her studies in Reykjavík. Shortly after, the third sister Ásthildur Valtýsdóttir joined for singing duties temporarily and Serena Tideman replaced Gyða on cello, for a single European tour. The band’s third album, Summer Make Good, a darker and foggier, nautically themed work was released in May 2004, flanked by two singles, Nightly Cares and Dusk Log.

    Smilewound is NOT bad. [3] Just listen to Toothwheels, Candlestick and Time to Scream and Shout to name a few. The other ones are just too pop and reminds me somehow of Late Night Alumni. But I appreciate more the old one múm. AND PLEASE, don't stop making wonderful music!

    Extraordinarily amazing gig in Ljubljana! It's so nice to see a band that's really, really having fun preforming live. I must say I was very, VERY pleasantly surprised...

    a few time ago I started to listening 'Early birds' and I must say that it is as beautiful as their first album. 'Smilewound' isn't bad at all.. I expect more glitch, less pop

    Why is it that bad? I think it's a lively album.

    Yesterday was dramatic, today is OK > Finally we are no one > Summer make good > Go go smear the poison Ivy > Sing along to songs you didn't know > (for now) Smilewound : (

    Y'all shouldn't be calling it bad just because it's different.

    Múm - алхимики от музыки! Цепляет у них все!! Последний альбом сначала не понравился, а потом расслушал, очень здорово!

    New album is not as disappointing as their previous one, but it still sounds NOTHING like the old mum, everything they released after "Go Go Smear The Poision Ivy" is boring, chaotic and keeps me uninterested in them :/
