Seabear’s Icelandic pop

I kind of forgot about this one but it came up last night on album shuffle and it’s a really nice CD. The singer is Sindri Már Sigfússon, who is also the main engine behind Sin Fang Bous. I went to see Sin Fang Bous last year, when the band was touring with Mum, and you can read about it here.

Seabear is quite similar to Sin Fang Bous, in terms of wispy melodies and dreamy harmonies, but arranged in a little bit more of an Americana style…with strings, for instance…and with a little less of that rocking kick to it. But really pretty.

Anyway, here’s “Lion-Faced Boy” from the album We Built a Fire, out at the end of the month on Morr Music.
