OK, OK, so this isn’t technically a new song – in fact, KEXP debuted it last December when they managed to catch them during the Iceland Airwaves festival. But it’s been stuck in my head ever since so I thought it only fair to share it with everyone else who may not have been so lucky to have listened to them. Picture Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros by way of Reykjavik and you’ll have a better idea of their sound. Or you could just listen to “Little Talks” and experience the beautiful Iceland folk pop for yourself.
The band just released a full-length album, My Head Is An Animal, in Iceland in September of this year. No word yet on an international release (or when they’ll finally make their way to the States), but you can keep updated on them via their Facebook and Twitter.
