Album: Komdu Til Mín Svarta Systir. Góður söltin mín sulla ég á þitt andlit. Strýk af enni glóð, ó þitt óða blóð. Oh oh, oh oh færðu mér þinn andardrátt.
Mammút's eponymous debut album was released in Iceland in 2006 on the Smekkleysa label founded by The Sugarcubes. The follow-up album, Karkari, was released in 2008 and included "Svefnsýkt" which became the band's first major hit with immense radio play and charting in Iceland On its tenth anniversary, the band released its third album, Komdu til mín svarta systir.
Icelandic indie-pop quintet Mammút has been on the verge of breaking out for quite some time now, and even though many listeners and fans pointed the group out as the next big thing from Iceland, something still seemed to lack for the group to really stand out among the prolific indie scene of the country.

I nearly forgot to include in this list what is possibly the best album to come out of Iceland this year because even before it hit store shelves, he was already working on other things, including an electronic-leaning side project called Pojke. Flowers, though, is an album that you want to sit with and watch it grow more dazzling with each listen.
Mammút formed in 2004 and are most distinguishable by the female singer’s angsty, passion-driven notes which are whispered sometimes bellowed over catchy, yet distorted guitar riffs. They received the Icelandic Music Prize for best album and album cover in 2014 for Komdu til mín svarta systir (Come to me, my dark sister. Dj. flugvél og geimskip. Flugvél og geimskip can be translated to Dj. Airplane and spaceship. This one-woman band plays electronic space music straight from some galactic center with a very playful series of beats and high pitched vocals to accompany.
