last month’s front runner for most-listened-to band a colectivo futuro’s HQ is non other than icelandic septet Seabear. currently signed to notorious berlin-based indie label Morr Music, the band has recently released their second full length in the form of “we built a fire“. what started as a solo project for Sindri Már Sigfússon, has slowly morphed into a striking ensemble of multi-faceted musicians, whose input is valued equally during the creative process. including members from iconic bands, such as sigur rós or múm, the band’s signature sound is a mixture of naive indie folk, fragile experimental, and icelandic DIY pop.
another cool aspect about the band is the fact that all artwork and videos (seen below) are hand made by Sindri’s partner and band mate Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir, which helps tie their sound and visual aesthetic perfectly together. despite their multi-instrumental lineup, Seabear‘s music is not one to blow you away, instead their productions will captivate your heart with their introspective, lo-fi approach.
