Bio

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.

Watch the traffic!

BSÍ – BSÍ (7“ EP) (2018)

BSÍ's first EP is pretty much a testimony to what this band is all about: Just a few weeks after starting the band, and a few days after their first ever concert (played at Ægir's R6013 venue), Silla and Julius recorded their first songs, barely finished writing them: Ekki á leið, Manama, Bú on you.  Mixed and mastered by themselves, and then released some months later via their friend's Thomas Götz Berlin based DIY record label Tomatenplatten, in collaboration with Why Not? Plötur. Their Spice Girls cover 'Wannabe' was also recorded at the same session and then later released as part of post-dreifing's Post-dreifing’s Drullumall #2 compilation.  For the EP's cover they handed Silla's old camera to a random friendly person working at BSÍ bus station, asking her to take a picture of the two of them.
