Sin Fang (IS)
Sin Fang is the main project of Iceland’s king of lo-fi layered lushness, Sindri Már Sigfússon (also the founder of the Icelandic indie pop collective Seabear). Sin Fang’s music oscillates wildly unearthing glimpses of familiarity – vintage Flying Nun here, Paw Tracks there and a Belle and Sebastian pop nous – while retaining the own stark originality of this ubertalented
artist and producer who was dubbed the “Icelandic Beck” by Rolling Stone magazine.
Sigfússon is a pretty unlikely ambassador of the Icelandic indie pop scene, in his teens he was a skateboard and Hip Hop aficionado, his arms are covered with a colourful mess of self designed tattoos and besides doing visual arts his true favourite obsessions are soccer and pizza; what makes him pretty much an antidote to the all too present cliché of the Icelandic nature boy.
In February 2013 Sin Fang releases “Flowers”, his third and most accessible full length album to date (recorded & produced by Alex Somers (producer of Sigur Rós & Jónsi)).
