Though only four songs, each one is fantastic and addictive in its own right. My love for this band reminds me a bit of my past obsession with Mumford and Sons. There's something about the combination of varied instruments and how both have the whole band singing in harmony, that really strikes a chord with me.
Their latest album, My Head is an Animal, recently released in April, is still topping the Alternative charts over a month later. The album utilizes a fuller range of the band's instruments and voices, but has the right combination of upbeat, catchy songs and slower, more contemplative pieces.
The video I posted is from a couple years back, shot in the band's apartment in Rejkavik. By filming them in the round, you can really see the full range of instruments [my favorite being the accordion, of course] and voices.
I haven't had the privilege of seeing them live yet, but I look forward to them coming to Atlanta one of these days!
