Artiestinformatie

Land   IJsland

Deze uit IJsland afkomstige indiefolk-, pop-, rock-band werd opgericht door zangeres en gitariste Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, zanger en gitarist Ragnar Þórhallsson, gitarist Brynjar Leifsson en drummer Arnar Rósenkranz Hilmarsson.


De band startte in 2010 met vier leden. Na de IJslandse muziekcompetitie Músíktilraunir van 2010 voegden Kristján Páll Kristjánsson en Árni Guðjónsson zich bij de band. Na 2 jaar te hebben getoerd en tegelijkertijd aan nieuw materiaal te werken, besloot voormalig piano/accordeonspeler Árni Guðjónsson de band in 2012 te verlaten.


Terwijl de band in februari 2011 het contract tekende voor hun debuutalbum in IJsland bij Record Records, kreeg de band in de Verenigde Staten steeds meer naamsbekendheid met hun debuutsingle Little Talks. Daardoor tekenden zij een contract bij Universal Music voor een wereldwijde release van het debuutalbum.


In 2015 verscheen hun tweede album Beneath The Skin.


Songtekst

Hey! Hey! Hey!

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear

The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

Some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks

Soon it will be over, and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love

Some days I don’t know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon
Now wait, wait, wait for me
Please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
