Over the four years since Árstíðir’s formation the band has released two full-length records and a remix EP praised by trendsetting music critics, had two number one hits on Icelandic radio, made several TV appearances in Iceland, Sweden, Russia, Germany, and the Czech Republic, and played sold out venues all over Europe. . In January 2013 Árstíðir won the 21st prestigious Eiserner Eversteiner European Folk Music Award.
Árstíðir’s arresting six-part vocal harmonies and lush instrumentation set them apart, effusing a warm tide of resonant acoustic and baritone guitars, virtuosic piano, and melismatic strings. The result is an uncommonly wide spectrum of sound, driven by the members’ exceptional vocal range.
