Similarly to ‘Of the Valley, we were tipped off about the existence of ‘Hinemoa’ by a really kind and knowledgeable follower on Twitter a few weeks back, and we’ve had a track of theirs on one of our new music playlists ever since. The Icelandic band were formed last year by Ásta Björg and Rakel Rakel Pálsdóttir, who had been writing material for other projects, but had songs written that didn’t quite fit in, so formed ‘Hinemoa’.
The thing that I like about this Icelandic band is that the music they produce appears to be so pure and simple, it seems to be written straight from the heart, and the instrumentation is so natural, with lovely flowing tunes.
Anyway they have a single out called ‘Bye Bye Birdie’, which we really love, and you can watch it below:
Hinemoa are another Icelandic band with a really bright future, and for those readers in Iceland in particular, please try and get to see this band live if you can, because we’ve had a great report on just how good they sound. Heres some links below if you want to discover more for yourself, and we will definitely be writing more about this band as soon as we have more material to tell you about.
