Biography

Einar and Rosa started hanging out last year in Reykjavik.
He needed a vocalist for a project. She came over.

It was pretty chilled out, so they decided they would meet up every Tuesday.
It felt like a holiday.
No pressure.
Einar was excited to just kick back, and not be too anal about things.

She had to contend with one of the smallest rooms you’ll ever see.
Small but good.
There was a thinking chair. ?Everything came together far faster than they were used to.

After a few productive months, it was time to head to the summer house.
To take advantage of Einar’s boat and relaxing hot tub.
And mix their record.
They ate really good food.
Everything was smooth.

Their pop music is carefree to the max.
If you’re looking for deep lyrics, you’re in the wrong place.
Nobody likes a try-hard.

Tight production from Einar provides a platform for Rosa’s voice to shine.
Soaring like a flock of angels dancing in the clouds, her gorgeous tones flit capriciously between alluring and vengeful.

Subtlety is the order of the day, electro-acoustic patchwork walls merge with deft backing vocals, resulting in a heady pop combination that shimmers and sparkles like sunshine on a rainy day.

Their track ‘Dreamin’ has turned a few heads, both inside and outside their native Iceland. It was named Best Song at the 2010 Iceland Music Awards.
Kitsuné, astutely hip judges of all things chic and pop, wasted no time in placing the track on their recent Maison compilation.

Nobody’s getting carried away just yet.
Don't be a stranger.
