Description

"An Icelandic collective that blends folk and electronic music, but the result is surprisingly conventional. Sing Along to Songs You Don't Know, ostensibly written largely in response to political unrest in Iceland, is decidedly apolitical, so mild throughout that it risks no offense as its pleasant escapism sidesteps the clamor of competing interests."

Hallo. We are múm and thats who we are, (pronounced "miooyyuujm"). And now our new album is out and it's called "Go go smear the poison ivy", it's our fourth album proper and we are happy with it.

But we are not medical practitioners, nor are we what is generally considered "hobos of leisure". We are conveyors of sound and a few things more and that's quite enough.

Our first album is called " yesterday was dramatic, today is ok", our second one was called "Finally we are noone" and the third "Summer make good", but before and between these two we released alot of different things and played with many different people in all kinds of places. These were all what you would call "good times", even though everything always goes up and down in one way or the other.
