Útidúr - [BadPanda051] Útidúr (2010)

  • Baroque pop
  • Chamber pop
  • Indie pop
  • Art pop
  • Balkan folk
  • Epic
  • Alternative pop
Comment: Útidúr is an Icelandic combo whose a pair of tracks are taken from the album This Mess We`ve Made (2010). More concretely, it is a spellbinding listening because of providing cinematic chamber/baroque/Balkan folk/pop waltzes and chirping male-female interactive singing (Fisherman´s Friend), and on the other side, diving deeply into subtle melancholy which is epic and lamentable simultaneously (Grasping for Thoughts). The group have hinted to be influenced by such artists as Angelo Badalamenti, Calexico, Beirut, Ennio Morricone, however, they have managed to add their own, northern touch to the aforementioned artists` sound.
