Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

AMIINA

Kurr

2007-09-24

This is the debut album from Sólrún, María, Edda and Hildur, four Icelandic women in their mid twenties. Soothing, trance-like sounds from Icelandic group Amiina, is a stellar debut. Compared with Sigur Ros, it’s no wonder why Amiina are receiving rave reviews. Not many vocals are present, with the exception of a few on various tracks, but it’s the music that really creates such a pristine and beautiful album. Check out tracks 1 “Sogg”, track 3 “Glamur”, track 4 “Seoul”, and track 9 “Saga”. – Lane Zoerhof
