Oyama are a young Icelandic five-piece making shoegaze-noise-rock. They have been favourably compared to a range of indie-rock acts past & present, from Breeders and Sonic Youth through to My Bloody Valentine and Grizzly Bear.
Oyama played a show every night of Iceland Airwaves 2012, with packed crowds and critical praise from homegrown and international media. Oyama were the Icelandic buzz-band of the festival, which also acts as an annual referendum on the country’s most promising new acts.
Oyama signed a management deal with London/Reykjavík firm Projekta on the back of their demo tracks and their captivating live show. The are currently unsigned and recording more songs, as well as writing towards a debut album.
Expect to see Oyama spread their wings internationally in 2013.
