Árstíðir produzieren als sechsköpfige Band ein Klang-Amalgam aus Progrock, Indie, Country und isländischer Volksmusik: virtuos und orchestral wie Sigur Rós. Drei akustische Gitarren, Cello, Violine und Piano – im Verbund mit sechsstimmigen Vokalharmonien. Seit ihrer Formation als Band hat Árstíðir drei von der Musikkritik unisono gelobte Alben herausgebracht. Nach ausverkauften Tours in Nordosteuropa, Skandinavien und Russland zelebriert das stylishe Sextett im Lido seinen ersten Berlin-Gig.

Much awarded insider-music documentaty BACKYARD by icelandic director Árni Sveinsson, featuring icelandic acts Múm, Hjaltalín, FM Belfast, Retro Stefson, Sin Fang Bous, Borko and Reykjavík!, giving us a unique look at the diverse music scene of Reykjavík in the summer of 2009.

Amazing soundart sextett ÁRSTÍÐIR are playing their first gig in Berlin at Northzone! After having toured vastly in Russia, Scaninavia and northeast Europe, and the release of their brandnew album, the 6 icelandic musicians are doing a splendid show. Six musicians, producing a sonic environment out of progrock, indie, country and icelandic klassical folkmusic, orchestral as Sigur Rós. Thre acoustic guitars, cello, violin and piano – combined with multilayered vocal harmonies. Their unique ambienance of sound is emreging to be the next big thing in the row of Sigur Rós and Björk.
