Record Records has signed a new Icelandic band called Hymnalaya and we must say that we’re so excited about them. Hymnalaya was formed in Reykjavík in 2012 and it is made up of four core members named Einar Kristinn Þorsteinsson (guitar & vocals), Gísli Hrafn Magnússon (guitar), Kristofer Rodriguez Svönuson (drums & percussion) and Þórdís Björt Sigþórsdóttir (violin).
The sound of Hymnalaya is a delicate compound made up with indie folk that’s fairly straightforward and somewhat melancholic. Their inspirations rest in the realms of hymns, ethnic and ambient music and their approach to music remarkably mature.
July 10 will see the release of Hymnalaya’s debut album, Hymns. Hymns was available for a short period of time for free on their website earlier in 2013 that won them discreet following after being namedropped by the one and only Of Monsters and Men on Facebook and Twitter.
We are proud to announce that Record Records has released re-issues of Retro Stefson’s first two albums, Montana and Kimbabwe.
Both Montana and Kimbabwe have been sold out for quite some time but are now available again in Icelandic record stores and in our online shop.
