Ok, first of all I must apologize coz this is my second thread in a day but Im bored and Im studying the whole day so Im just trying to find ways to procrastinate and relax :o

Anyway, today I just found randomly on fb this amazing page http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=17665747504 , it's about the Icelandic Music and oh gosh, Im more then a fan :inlove:

it's not only the amaze genius named Bjork :inlove: it's more and more, but always with that incredible taste, putting under the light the sound, the experimentation . Albums are not only works stuffed of stereotyped songs, are more into concept album, u never listen just to one song but u get lost in the progressive expression of their feelings. And well, the combination between the electro and much more sweet, refined sounds, using wind instruments that face the classical rock instruments , makes a perfect mix that works perfectly.
Of course all those artists are really different among them but what I wrote is something in common to most of them :drool:

I really love Bjork, the beginner of everything but my favorite artist for sure are Sigur Ros (Agaetis Byrjun and [] :hearts: )
well, they are simply legendary and I don't feel like speaking now about them coz maybe Im waiting for a huge fan to compare with but what I really wanna suggest are Seabear :inlove: It's like a mix between Sigur Ros, Sea Wolf and Belle and Sebastian... guitars that make love with xylopones and the result is just :inlove:

I also know there are a lot of Bjork fans here so maybe we can find some points in common

that's all for now

Seabear are awesome. :worship:

Can´t this be about scandinavian music in general? :angel: Although I am not completely sure if Iceland is generally considered part of Scandinavia? :tape:

Some favourites:

Kemialliset Ystävät
Paavoharju
Fricara Pacchu
Amon Dude
Lau Nau

Considering the fact that Iceland only has about 300,000 inhabitants, the musical scene is extremely rich, divert and simply great. Most I know, I know from Eurovision and some research....

Haffi Haff - The Wiggle Wiggle Song

4IrduZNMQfA


Páll Óskar - Allt fyrir ástina (All for love)

zqNJ8usO06k


I svörtum fötum - Paradís

V0FKfqWlCZo


and one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard in my live:

Sigga - Nætur

In Italy we don't cover Eurovision, there's no love for that show so basically I completely lost all the pop scene there, more focused on indie rock waves...
but I bet is good as well
