BSÍ is made up of best friends Silla Thorarensen (drums & vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar & toe synths). They started the band under the premise of trying instruments they didn't know how to play – and are named after Reykjavík's central bus terminal, a way to honor “the most miserable location you can find in all of Iceland”.

The two try to not take themselves too seriously, unafraid to embrace their self-doubts and just do and be what- or however they feel. BSÍ's debut album Sometimes Depressed … but Always Antifascist came out in May 2022, and consists of five songs of low key heartbreak melancholy and five songs riot grrrl lofi-cute-punk. The two different halves of the record touch upon the endless fall, vulnerability and intimacy of loss and leaving – while on the other side celebrating sunny summer days, salty knees and the idea of a feminist world revolution.

One year, some concerts and usually too few rehearsals later, the duo released Relax, blabla, another two-sided affair, one song fast, one song slow, and just in time for yet another summer. Watch the traffic, bring a dancer and a therapist, BSÍ is coming to by:Larm!


BSÍ består av bestevennene Silla Thorarensen på trommer og vokal og Julius Pollux Rothlaender på bass og “tåsynth”. De startet bandet med mål om å prøve ut instrumenter de ikke kunne, og tok bandnavnet fra Reykjavíks sentralstasjon for å hylle “det tristeste stedet på hele Island”.

Debutalbumet Sometimes Depressed … but Always Antifascist kom i mai 2021 og består av én halvdel melankolsk kjærlighetssorg, og én halvdel lo-fi riot grrrl cute-punk. Den ble etterfulgt av EPen Relax, blabla i april 2022, og til høsten gjør de sin debut i Norge på by:Larm.

  • Debut album Sometimes Depressed … but Always Antifascist out 2021
  • Self-released with help from tomatenplatten (Berlin), post-dreifing and Why Not? Plötur (Reykjavík)
