Don't Miss Rökkurró's new single + video "The Backbone"

The album will be their first partially English-language album.


Rökkurró are:

Axel Ingi Jónsson - guitar

Árni Þór Árnason - guitar

Björn Pálmi Pálmason - drums, piano

Helga Ragnarsdóttir, keyboard

Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir - vocals, keyboard Skúli Agnarr Einarsson - bass


In 2010 Rökkurró released the studio album Í Annan Heim (produced by Alex Somers of Jónsi fame) to an unexpected wave of critical acclaim - not just within their native Iceland but internationally. The album spent a staggering 100 weeks in the Icelandic chart’s Top 30, while international media such as NME, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, CMU Daily and KEXP Radio championing the band.

The fade-in of this song is just incredible. The song also has a relaxing, mystical quality, mixed with just the right amount of aggression.
The album will be available in October.
Check out the video for The Backbone here.
