Blindfold is made up of four young vivacious Icelandic Londoners’ who have been creating their music that is drawing comparisons to Radiohead, Muse and Sigur Ros amongst others but with their own trademark sound and style. They have a passion for exploring new sounds and creating mesmerising songs, made by a vast mix of textures carefully crafted on only

Guitars [ Sven ] Bass [ Teitur ] Drums [ Friðrik ]

This alongside the enigmatic vocals of frontman & composer Biggi Hilmarsson is truly provoking and real. You have to experience them live and on record to understand why they will have real longevity and continued rave reviews. Blindfold are creating their own distinctive and un-paralleled cross genre music.

The debut album ‘Blindfold’ was received with un-precedented positive response and now their forthcoming new album is eagerly anticipated featuring the superb singles "Faking Dreams, Sad Face & Fit You" The press are saying they are creating music where everyone will want to own a ‘Blindfold’ album and their sound and style are pushing boundaries.

The Blindfold Sound? A mixture of hugely conflicting styles performed in such a way, that they create something both rather unique and beautiful. As with most Icelandic music to grace these shores, the emphasis is focused on dreamy melodies, sprawling post rock / shoegazing influences and with added bonus of basic electronics.

The debut album is a very personal and genuinely heartfelt collection of tracks; which could be linked to the recording sessions being spread over a 2 year period between 2002 and 2004, capturing contrasting feelings and emotions. The heights that Blindfold’s studio album, MySpace mp3’s and promos have scaled can only be exceeded by their live performances.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EDIT NOTE: The following Titles Added. 2011 Album [ Cinematic Songs ] released under the name of "Biggi Hilmars". 2011 [ Self Title ] release under the alias of "Blindfold". 2005 Title [ My Delusions ] and 2006 Title [ Sail To The Moon ] release under the name of "Ampop".

GOODNESS... I don't which album or what project should I pick to start praising. As for his musical background clearly the guy carries some heavy luguage and a decade of experience. I just finish listening to the entire of [ Faking Dreams ] and this album literally brought tears to my eyes.

Soaring lyrics / emotional build-up, beautiful guitars, you name it. It's an album you HAVE TO LISTEN TO UNDERSTAND. Needless to say the sound on the Self-title is just as good as [ Faking Dreams ] and as far as the projects "Ampop" and "Biggi Hilmars" goes... Well, listen for yourself. EXQUISITE SOUND all together. On a piano / contemporary-classic note start with [ Cinematic Sounds ] and on a Radiohead / Muse / Sigur Ros note start with [ Faking Dreams ] as long you do not skip "Ampop"

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
