Hailing from Iceland, this six-piece band, whose fantasy world is brought to life in their music, have been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire, Laura Marling, and elements of Bat for Lashes, and a sweeter dash of The Vaselines. They meld traditional sea-shanty folk, using male and female vocals, and beautiful harmonies, with tales of nature, magic and soaring music-scapes. Their album, My Head Is A Monster, is out now.
