DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW
On ‘Iridescent’ Isbjörg challenges the conventions and cement themselves as a band who strives to give something different to the world of progressive rock. Odd time signatures and polyrhythms combined with catchy hooks and lush melodies capture the listener in an intense and unpredictable soundscape.
The title ‘Iridescent’ as well as the artwork (Original painting by Freia Maria Faber) for the album encapsulates the colorful and lush vibe of Isbjörg’s sound. The music has many facets but they are all united by the energetic performances and the continuous fusion of the distorted guitars and the classic piano. The lyrical themes of the album also range widely, but with an overall melancholic yet hopeful feel to them.
As with Isbjörg’s previous work ‘Iridescent’ was written, recorded, mixed, mastered and published by the band themselves. ‘Iridescent’ is excactly the album Isbjörg wanted to make and captures the creative energy and playful rebelliousness that makes Isbjörg who they are.”
'Iridescent' was released on April 26th 2019. Isbjörg are now working on the follow-up. First single 'Ornament' out on January 27th 2023.
