Total Crush: Sin Fang

I've had a little crush on Sin Fang since I saw him fronting Sea Bear back in 2010.  I was already liking his solo stuff… and I'm even enjoying his new Pojke stuff!  But alas, another Sin Fang album is coming on Feb. 19th, called Flowers. Check out the newest track, a video & many more details below…

A great performance from KEXP.

Sindri Már Sigfússon aka Sin Fang and Icelandic collective Seabear's founder and mastermind, has released the first single 'Young Boys' off his third solo album, Flowers, recorded & produced by Alex Somers (Sígur Rós, Jónsi) and set for release on February 19th on Morr Music.

Following his Half Dreams EP this year, Flowers is an album that opens with a lot of collective chanting, a sense of deep rootedness, togetherness, unity, and shared experience: "We were young boys, smoking in the woods, I showed you how," are the first words Sindri Már Sigfússon aka Sin Fang scatters across the less-beaten tracks, only to leapfrog across the lawn and switch on the stage lights for his own take of stadium pop. A song like "What's Wrong With Your Eyes" would indeed be fit for a stadium setting - it's so massive, so outspokenly pop, when the beat meets layered vocals and the piano comes in just at the right moments. "I was thinking a lot about pre-teenage and teenage feelings," he explains. "The exaggerated feelings and dramatic thoughts that most teenagers go through: Love and rejection, the constant ups and downs...I thought Flowers was a good name for that theme as they are used both for sad and happy occasions."
