"Get cheered up by these exotic Islandic songs"
Seabear is 23-year old Sindri Már Sigfússon from Reykjavik, Iceland, who writes beautiful songs using acoustic guitar and piano, gentle vocals, tinkly-winkly mallets, synth flourishes, and restrained percussion. Seabear started as a one-man project and then turned into a band when Sindri was asked to open in Berlin. Never having performed these songs live, he asked two of his friends, guggý and örn, to come with him and play. They had so much fun playing live and practising that they decided that they would join the band. The music is subdued and mellow folk pop, with a little piano, violin, acoustic guitar and atmospheric vocals, all carefully squeezed through a lo-fi filter. They released their first full-length album, “The Ghost That Carried Us Away”, on August 17, 2007 (gas&row), and Sept 11, 2007 (usa) through Morr Music.
