Icelandic 7-piece Seabear has announced the release of their anticipated sophomore album, We Built a Fire, in March 2010 on Morr Music.
The band will be making their US touring debut behind the album’s release, as well as performing several shows and parties at this year’s SXSW.
LISTEN TO THE ALBUM STREAM OF ‘WE BUILT A FIRE’:
Defying its humble beginnings as the lo-fi solo project of Icelandic singer/multi-instrumentalist Sindri MÃ¡r SigfÃºsson, Seabear has morphed into a rambling experimental/indie/folk septet. SigfÃºsson (also known as Sin Fang Bous – dubbed the “Icelandic Beck” by David Fricke of Rolling Stone on his recent US tour with MÃºm) was joined by the rest of the band for the making of We Built A Fire, the followup to their debut, 2007’s The Ghost That Carried Us Away. Despite scant promotion and airplay behind their debut, Seabear’s instantly-familiar songs and animated videos were a social media hit, selling over 20,000 records, generating millions of plays, and appearing in hit television shows such as “Gossip Girl.”
