Sin Fang Bous will tour North America this fall with fellow Icelanders Múm, who just released Sing Along to Songs You Don’t Know on Morr Music. While this is Múm’s fifth album, Sin Fang Bous (the one-man project of Sindri Mar Sigfusson) has only released his debut. That album, Clangour, tickled the indie highbrow’s fancy when it came out in February; NPR called it "curious and inviting."
You may know Sigfusson as the former frontman of Seabear. This new alias finds him stacking instrumental layers over 8-bit samples and self-harmonized vocals.
Download “Catch the Light” off of Clangour.
