Hands Remember by Seabear

I tend to listen to a lot of new music a lot and then never really post about it, so as of lately I’ve been trying to be better about sharing. Today’s musical find is a band called Seabear, which I stole from my ex-boyfriend Jeff. The band was a one-man project of Icelandic fella Sindri Sigfússon in 2000, but since then the band has grown and features 7 members.

Their most recent album, The Ghost That Carried Us Away, is a delightfully poppy album that instantly made me happy. Sindri’s voice is extremely mellow and has one of those voices that sneaks into your head. The music itself is really layered and the band plays a ton of different instruments on the album. To me this album feels similar in tone to Fanfarlo, it’s a well put together album that makes you happy that it’s summer.

Their Wikipedia page also says that they’re working on a new album that’s supposed to come out in 2009. Let’s all cross our fingers for some more Icelandic goodies.

    You should check out Sindri’s solo project Sin Fang Bous, it’s really good stuff.
