Úlpa


Úlpa When a band has a knack of writing very good music and is also willing to put in a lot of hard work, there can only be one outcome..........Úlpa. Úlpa is one of these bands and the four members, all hailing from Hafnarfjör›ur, a suburb of Reykjavík Iceland, truly deserve all the praise they have been receiving. Although they´re a bit baffled by their success, Magnús, Bjarni, Aron and Haraldur remain focused on their music and have an unwritten policy to do just what they want to do. Read more on Last.fm
Úlpa When a band has a knack of writing very good music and is also willing to put in a lot of hard work, there can only be one outcome..........Úlpa. Úlpa is one of these bands and the four members, all hailing from Hafnarfjör›ur, a suburb of Reykjavík Iceland, truly deserve all the praise they have been receiving. Although they´re a bit baffled by their success, Magnús, Bjarni, Aron and Haraldur remain focused on their music and have an unwritten policy to do just what they want to do. If people like their music, then fine, but if not, they won´t lose much sleep over it.

But what type is Úlpa´s music? It's really hard to pin it down as the band tends to bring the best from many different worlds while adding some very nice touches of its own. The result; space guitar driven Indie rock from the top drawer, that is influenced by everything, but still sounds like nothing you´ve ever heard before. When the debut album ‘Mea culpa’ was released in Iceland in the fall of 2001, Úlpa had already become a house-hold name in the music scene and shared stage with artists such as Stephen Malkmus, Blonde Redhead, Trans Am and The Fucking Champs. A limited edition single that preceded the full-lenght album was also a shock hit and was aired quite often on Icelandic radio in the following weeks.

The album, recorded by Valgeir Sigur›sson (best known for his work with Björk) didn't disappoint, although some had probably hoped it would be more mainstream. It took some time for it to sink in and, instead of fading away, it just became better and better to the listener--a true measure of a good album. They are now working on their second album which is in the final stages of completion. These are truly exciting times........ - Árni Viðar Read more on Last.fm.
