Best known for a decade recording and performing live with Sigur Rós, Amiina was formed in the late 90's as a quartet of girls from Reykjavík College of Music to explore delicate sounds with strings and subtle electronica, setting the tone for very deep and sensorial Icelandic music experience. Amiina's debut album, Kurr flows in a strange, powerful place between sophistication and innocence.

 

 

  • Double LP
  • DMM Direct Metal Mastering cut
  • 200 Grams Vinyl
  • Bonus track: "Hilli (At The Top Of The World)", the last recording of Lee Hazlewood

 

 

Originally a string quartet formed by four girls (Edda Rún Ólafsdóttir, Hildur Ársælsdóttir, María Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir and Sólrún Sumarliðadóttir) at the Reykjavík College of Music in the late 1990s, amiina went on to cut its teeth as Sigur Rós' string section for the next decade.

In 1999 the quartet joined Icelandic band Sigur Rós on stage. The collaboration has continued ever since with amiina contributing strings to Sigur Rós’ music on tours and in the recording studio on the albums ( ) , Takk and Með Suð... In 2004 amiina’s first EP AnimaminA was released, followed by the Seoul single (2006), the album Kurr (2007), a Lee Hazlewood collaboration on a 7” vinyl Hilli (at the Top of...) (2008) and the limited release EP Re Minore (2009).

Amiina's debut album, Kurr (2007), was performed on a disparate jumble of instruments – musical saws, kalimbas, music boxes and seemingly anything that could be plucked, bowed or beaten on – resulting in a work that ebbed and flowed “in a strange, powerful place between sophistication and innocence,” according to The Guardian.
