A wonderful yet obscure band. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
This album has always felt like one I should like more than I actually do, and I'm not quite sure why. The music and instrumentation are interesting, but somehow the vocals (universally high and sweet) don't always seem to gel with them. So it feels a bit dissonant, but not purposefully so. Still, tracks 1, 6, and 8 are quite good. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Axel Ingi Jónsson
Alex Somers and Rökkurró
This album is a big step up from their debut. While I still find the music more interesting than the vocals, they work much better together and the songs are more cohesive. The mood ranges from the ethereal to more rock moments. A great step in the right direction. (JoAnn Whetsell)
