January is a fucking grim month. After that, we get the even grimmer February. And after that, it does not really get any better for a long time. I am dreading it already. Dýrðin arrive to the rescue with the most sugarcoated summer feeling indie rock I have heard since I do not know when. It is almost like stepping into a time machine, back to the glory years of indie pop. Before the Strokes destroyed it all. Dýrðin has a long history, originally formed in 1994 but lay dormant until 2002. Dýrðin’s members were active in various underground groups in the last century (Vonbrigði, Risaeðlan, Bellatrix). 11 songs that for the most part all follow the same formula, but fortunately, it is a great formula. Bubbly-indie-pop that makes you want to drink cheap white wine and dance. This is what is needed in January.
