New Music You NEED To Hear :: Aron Can, EOMY, Skrattar & Rythmatik
June 1st, 2016 | IMX Inside Iceland
Roll up, roll up, we got new music coming out of the wazzoo, this week, it’s a mixed bag of heart-throb hip hop, sultry electro, indie rock and DIY surf punk. We’ve even included an excellent cover at the end, just because…
We’re telling you, if nothing on this list makes you tingle, you might, actually, in fact be dead.
Let’s kick off with the newest and possibly youngest Icelandic hip-hopper currently making hearts swell and quicken. His name is Aron Can and, at the tender age of 16 he’s made a seriously beautiful track that has managed to rack up over 80,000 views since it’s launch at the beginning of May. Expect huge things from this babyfaced hip hop killer.
East Of My Youth – ‘Mother’
EOMY are seriously punching above their weight recently. They had a blazing time at the the most recent SxSW festival. Now they have released ‘Mother’ which has also found it’s way on an MTV teen drama ‘Faking It‘. Keep an eye on these wonderful ladies.
Skrattar – ‘Good Day’
Skrattar or in English ‘Devils’ are a pair of bad boys. They mix together psych rock, 60s surf and a drum machine, with pretty awesome low-fi earworms.
The band recently put out a video for the song ‘Good Day’, which follows the members on a wicked car ride through the city of Reyjavík. Skrattar are Karl Torsten Ställborn (Muck/Fufanu) and Guðlaugur Halldór Einarsson (Fufanu/russian.girls).
Rythmatik – ‘Sugar Rush’
Rythmatik won the big ‘battle of the bands’ last year, they’ve since gone on to perform at Iceland Airwaves and have fun in supermarkets. Check out their epic battle masterpiece in the video below.
We are also including an honorary mention, from Stroff with their cover of ‘Streets Of Philadelphia:
