Icelandic experimental indie-folk septet Seabear is preparing to make their first set of appearances in North America on a national headlining tour, including several shows at this year’s SXSW. The band will perform songs from their upcoming Morr Music release, We Built a Fire. As a musical cherry on top, Via Tania and Seabear multi-instrumentalist Sóley will play opening sets. Sóley plays solo with occasional back-up by other Seabear members in support of her Theater Island EP, also due out on Morr Music in March. All together, it promises to be a line-up of intricate, lovely tunes like you’ve never heard before.
In the meantime, head over to www.itunes.com/seabear to grab a specially-priced exclusive Itunes pre-release of We Built A Fire with the six bonus songs from the While The Fire Dies EP–out a full month before We Built a Fire‘s official March 5th release! While you’re there check out the celebrated solo project of Seabear founder, Sindri Már Sigfússon, called Sin Fang Bous.
Be sure to catch Seabear when they hit your city with Via Tania and Sóley!
