Sin Fang Bous


Published March 6, 2009

As Sin Fang Bous is the solo-project of Sindri from Seabear, you will quickly notice the comfortable voice and welcoming little melodies that make his main band one of my favourite young Icelandic indie acts. The differences between the projects are not that big, only that Sin Fang Bous tries to broaden the sound of Seabear by adding electronic gadgets. This means Clangour follows a more experimental approach, instead of Seabear’s catchy pop-tunes.
This is sometimes exciting as in Catch the Light, sometimes beautiful (Sunken Ship), but sometimes also quite unspectacular – as in the flat Clangour and Flutes – or even downright annoying because of apparently random electronic effects.
Clangour leaves a mixed impression as a record. However, it also is an interesting documentation of the talented Sindri’s musical experiments as seen from a different angle. Taken in this way, it does not matter that not all the experiments are a success.
