Sudden Weather Change are a five piece band from Iceland, who don't whine in made-up languages or run around naked in forests (well, they might actually do the latter). Where indie music in the last decade has moved slowly away from the early 90s alternative rock ethic (no computers! no classical instruments! lots of guitars and noise!), Sudden Weather Change embrace that ideology and turn up their amps to make sure the three guitars and bass feedback like crazy.
Their songwriting may remind people of the more complex side of Sonic Youth - with hypnotizing guitar lines interweaving with a solid bass and drum combo to create a huge wall of sound which goes perfectly with their none-sensical yet strangely cohesive lyrics that could make any literature buff go nuts. However, their attitude on stage might bring to mind political riots in 70's Paris or the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona - ...while their loud guitars should please J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.
After releasing a home-recorded EP in 2006, Sudden Weather Change have gathered huge praise in Icelandic press, as well as with any foreign tabloid writers which have been lucky enough to witness the band performing (they have only once toured outside of Iceland). In April 2009 they released their first full-length album Stop! Handgrenade In The Name of Crib Death 'nderstand? with Kimi Records in Iceland who went on to release the album in the rest of the world in October of the same year.
In June 2010 they released a 7" single which has redefined the band's sound; louder, crisper and meaner. Currently they are working on an EP where they will collaborate with Australian/Icelandic sound artist Ben Frost to be released in late 2010. Expect a new LP in 2011.
