Seabear - We Built A Fire (2010)

Those Nordic folks sure do seem to make a lot of pop music that tickles my fancy. Seabear came out with another LP this year and it is of the caliber one should expect from a band with such a solid track record. As is the norm for the band and its peers, there is plenty of sweetness and soft, warm feelings about. The thing I like about Seabear is the excellent employment of string instrumentation, gives the whole deal some real class. If take a shining to this you should be sure to hunt down their previous albums and I posted the album by Sin Fang Bous, which is just a pseudonym for the lead singer of Seabear, Sindri Mar Sigfusson. Gotta love those wild Icelandic names.

  1. Browsing your blog - grabbing some Maserati - getting ready for show tomorrow night in ATL. Just had to comment on the Seabear though. I'm so conflicted - there are a couple of songs on here that are killer - but only a couple. I saw them in NYC a few weeks ago and the coolest thing about this band is that they're from Iceland, otherwise, there's little else to get excited about. Please disagree with me, tell me what I'm missing.

  2. I can't really tell you what to like about it. Either you like the style of music they're into and you find the little details that make Seabear personally exciting or its not your jam. When a dislike a type of music all the songs I hear in it seem to be the same time, so maybe that is it. Do you like other bands somewhat like Seabear?
