  • Description

    The vinyl is limited to 300 copies worldwide: 140 black. If there is one thing the music scene in Iceland is known for, it's interesting collaborations and unexpected, often brilliant results. That may well be an understatement for the new split 7" collaboration between two Icelandic acts that defy categorization: Sólstafir and Legend. Sólstafir, who AllMusic referred to once as "Robert Smith playing Krautrock in a fjord," does a long, post-metal version of one of Legend's best tracks off Fearless: Runaway Train. The result is a haunting mixture of rock, pop, and post-everything angst that high-lights singer Addi Tryggvason's unmistakably unique vocal talents. Legend does their own version of the Sólstafir mega-hit Fjara, on which ex-Minus frontman Krummi Bjorgvins sings beautifully. Choosing to do Fjara was perhaps ballsy, but Legend pulls it off with flare, making the rock anthem into a dark-pop number worthy of Depeche Mode or The Mission. The 7" vinyl features an exclusive concept-photo by Icelandic artist Iris Sigurdardottir with the band-members lined up in a black room, side-by-side
