Reykjavík’s central bus terminal BSÍ is no longer only the most miserable location you can find in all Iceland – it’s also finally reincarneted and praised as the name of a very new band.
While people still wonder if BSÍ actually stands for Brussels Sprouts Intl., it’s at least sure that this one is a rumbling and rolling two-piece, made up of Sigurlaug Thorarensen (drums & vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass & toe-synths).
Their spirit of DIY, Krútt pönk and downtown worries & sorrows is set to conquer 101 Reykjavík and beyond!
Riot Grrrls are back in town!
The band’s first EP was released in fall 2018 as a 7” vinyl via Tomatenplatten/Berlin and Why Not? plötur/Reykjavík, followed up by a song on Post-dreifing’s Drullumall #2 compilation.
Since then BSÍ played several concerts and festivals in Iceland and Germany and spent the year 2020 writing and recording their debut album – five songs heartbreak melancholy, five songs lofi-cute-punk, ‘Sometimes depressed … but always antifascist’ might be one of the more unconventional and most exciting records to be released out of Iceland in 2021.
