A nice bit of Indie Pop / Rock from Iceland here. Great driving sound w/ wispy voices layered on top. Reminds me a bit of some mid 2000s british indie, which I’m a fan of.

This is such a great looking record as well, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen “circles” in a colored pressing. I dig it.

The Details

Hailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, musical prowess and pedigree is something that innately runs through Jón Björn Árnason and Leifur Kristinsson’s veins. Together they are Ourlives, and over the last nine years they have been meticulously assembling a lush and layered musical narrative. Contributing to the post-Britpop tradition of bands like Coldplay, Radiohead, and Travis, Ourlives fuses together delicate textures with driving guitars and drum work, and seamlessly transition between spare and intimate ballads and soaring, declarative anthems. This is Den of Lions, a heartbreakingly gorgeous examination of love and darkness, intimacy and isolation, and paranoia and clarity.
