From LiveNation’s Press Release:
“”Amiina is most well known for their role as the accompanying musicians for fellow Icelandic band Sigur Rosâ€™s 2005-2006 tour and for their contributions to Sigur Rosâ€™s ( ) and Takk albums. But before they were the four beautiful women creating the ethereal soundscapes for Sigur Ros, they were students at Icelandâ€™s ReykjavÃkâ€™s College of Music. They played music in the school orchestra and refer to that experience as the main inspiration for the music they compose today.Â
Kurr, amiinaâ€™s debut album, named after the sound that birds are said to make in Iceland, makes use of a superfluity of instruments, including everything from violins, guitars and keyboards to wine glasses, bells, metalophones, Celtic harps, water glasses, musical saws, glockenspiels and kalimbas.Â “”
Seriously, go to this show. I saw Amina open for Sigur Ros last year and they where by far one of the most mesmerizing and interesting group ofmusicians that I have seen.
