Grísalappalísa have become one of the most fun, quirkiest rock bands out of Iceland in recent times, with an acid combination of kraut and post-punk that delivers piercing Icelandic lyrics of strong literary roots. Driven by a mischievous saxophone, ‘Sambýlismannablús’ is the short, jumpy track that opens the group’s latest album Rökrétt framhald.
The music video defies the idea of Iceland as an ethereal, mystical land to shows us more mundane images like (almost) skinny dipping in icy waters. The video has a charming DIY feel, and as matter of fact it was directed by drummer Sigurður Möller Sívertsen using an iPhone and a couple of GoPro cameras for action-packed, point of view shots. The wonders of modern technology.
