Artist discography


It´s a cold and tough climate in the nordic seas, especially if you live in Iceland, the island with no trees. You can truly touch the melancholy of Árstíðir´s music, their second album Svefns og vöku skil is a beautiful and relaxing affair of folk music and indie pop. Árstíðir (Seasons in English) is a vocal-based indie band from Reykjavík with a sound unique to the Icelandic music scene with artists like Sigur Ros, Björk and Jonsi. The band is very popular in Iceland where they have had 2 number one hits, only 3 songs are in English and the rest is in their native language which only makes the music more alive and real. There are no drums on the album but it´s nothing that I feel is missing in their sound, there is enough drama in the songs so my mind is caught on something else rather than waiting for the drummer to step in.
