Quotes

“...a psyche pop gem that ́s a shaunting as it is transfixing”

Rolling Stone

"Sigfússon suffuses his new project with little anxieties and mysteries that have the power to surprise. Sigfússon's cut-and-paste folk manages effortlessly to evoke both the psychedelic rockers of yesteryear and more recent enchanters like Stuart Murdoch and Panda Bear."

Pitchfork

“With his ear-pleasing melodies and appeasing vocals Sin Fang Bous has crafted a beautiful sound of blissful chaos. And just for the record, I was cheering for Iceland during D2: The Mighty Ducks”

Urb

“Like Animal Collective, Sin Fang Bous layers and loops together unusual sound effects, samples, and vocals to create a sound that could easily melt into every nook in the most cavernous of spaces.”

NPR

“Cross a less morose Sigur Rós with Sufjan Stevens and a more clear-headed Animal Collective and you're pretty close to imagining Clangour's sound. “

Textura

“..get lost in the imagination of this new Island sensation, soon to be in everybody’s heart, like Björk or sigur ros

Streetware Mag

"Als hätten sich The Notwist, Lambchop, Rober Wyatt und die späten Talk Talk zu einer Session verabredet"

Keys Mag

“..experimental sounds, creating dreamy avant-garde psych-folk that resists the restraints of both pop and folk music much like Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear.”

Morr Music - morr 088

Welcome to the Wunderkammer. Pop music with a bow, a present from Reykjavik and from Sindri Mar Sigfusson. A present that he gave to us and especially to himself. A surprise album, a search game in terms of pop music.
At the beginning there was an atmosphere of breaking up. Whereas on the one hand face and body of his band Seabear (whose debut was released on Morr Music in August 2007) gained their outlines more clearly, there remained a deliberately left open game with the sounds on the other hand. The name for this game was soon found: Sin Fang Bous.
Sindri Mar Sigfusson took his time. And he let time blow through the tracks. Gravitation processes, drifts, accumulations. What began as a miniature - a voice, a guitar - changed its textures and re-coloured its leaves. "Pocket Symphonies" one is inclined to say with Brian Wilson. Reduced to the max and equally concentrated up to its essence. Songs, sounds and samples are crystal clear and yet able to raise a storm.
Like in "Advent in Ives garden", a greenhouse in paradise, an "always more" of melody miniatures and sound pieces. Or, as the choirs in "Catch the light", it is his own voice that Sindri Mar Sigfusson expects of and even dares to do most of all. "I wanted to try to do stuff with my voice I hadn't done before so there's some singing above my range there and singing through lots of effect stuff."
Still there is this direct, intuitive sound - a reliance in sounds that also characterises Seabear's music. Embraces in pop, distinctive naivety. And yet Sin Fang Bous knows about the process-relatedness of pop music's production. Though, this debut has become a producer's album, too. Another talent of only 26-year-old Sindri Mar Sigfusson.
