Worm Is Green

Iceland's Worm Is Green gathers sparse electronic beats and glossy trip-hop threads for a stylish experimental sound. Hailing from the city of Arkranes, female vocalist Gudrídur Ringsted is surrounded by boys: Árni Teitur Ásgeirsson (programming/synthesizer), Bjarni Por Hannesson (samples), Porsteinn Hannesson (drums), and Vilberg Hafsteinn Jónsson (bass). The chilling dynamic that is Worm Is Green came together in 2002. European fans immediately took to the band's hypnotic dream pop swirls when their debut album, Automagic, was released on Thule in 2003. Automagic saw a domestic release on Arena Rock in May 2004. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

What happened to them after 2004? I would like to hear more from them.
This stuff is so chill. Like I have a hard time finding music that I like since I'm a Radiohead fan and thom yorke is perfection and no music sounds good after listening to him but I like this:)
Edie Brickell on acid!! great sounding vocals
Sounds a bit like Flunk. Very groovy!
This track is very fly. Love it.
very useful to listen to when throwing clay on the wheel
Same chick that sings on Tricky's "Vulnerable? "
She sounds just like Dot Allison of One Dove
I have to agree. The stuff coming out of Iceland reminds me of the old sixties dreamscapes. Must be the heavy duty climate or the volcanic ash with its strange properties. See Asbury Park San Francisco.

My next trip is to Iceland. I fall in love with every musical group I hear from there.
COSMOLOGY VOICES, BEATS...... MUSIC
totally hypnotic..i love it. great mix
Sounds Ok the first time I've heard it. Thanks for the info, Kasey.
Sorry for the hardcore reversed biography, copying and pasting isn't what it used to be... that or, I'm just lazy.

In any event, here's their "bio" for those who aren't familiar.

It's a good listen... enjoy. (BTW... to explain the bio... start with my lowest post, then read to the upper most.)
Arni Teitur Asgeirsson- Programming & Synthesizer
Bjarni Thor Hannesson- Sampler & Synthesizer
Thorsteinn Hannesson- Drums
Vilberg Hafsteinn Jonsson- Bass Gudridur Ringsted- Vocals
” Until you get a chance to see Worm Is Green live, check out Automagic, a record that aligns the band with Iceland’s skewed geniuses (Bjork, Sigur Ros) and incorporates sounds that conjure up images of purple sunsets, jagged cliffs and stark landscapes. However, as Asgeirsson puts it, “We aren’t really walking on glaciers on an everyday basis.”
” Until you get a chance to see Worm Is Green live, check out Automagic, a record that aligns the band with Iceland’s skewed geniuses (Bjork, Sigur Ros) and incorporates sounds that conjure up images of purple sunsets, jagged cliffs and stark landscapes. However, as Asgeirsson puts it, “We aren’t really walking on glaciers on an everyday basis.”
Plans include adding more vocals and touring extensively.

“We consider our live show being our greatest aspect,” says Asgeirsson. “We deliver electronic music in a new way, with a live drummer, vocals, bass player and two synth maniacs. It’s very chilled out and laid back, but everything is possible. We’ve played shows more reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails than Worm Is Green.
”Perhaps, but a more apt comparison is to British new wave and pop, Factory and 4AD bands, even Portishead. That’s all for others to ponder, though, while Worm Is Green stay trained on the future. Automagic earned them a nomination for best new act in Iceland’s music awards, and the band was still gelling as the record came together. Now with a few years of experience both in the studio and on stage, the musicians are on a mission to develop their sound further.

“We take our work seriously, but the humor is what keeps us together,” says Asgeirsson.

This playfulness carries over into the band’s own description of its hard to peg sound. Jonsson once told a Finnish TV interviewer, “We are like Lionel Richie. Only newer. And not with the Commodores.
.” Elsewhere, Worm Is Green focus on creating their own memorable songs, starting in Asgeirsson’s bedroom, and in one case, at his grandfather’ s jewelry shop, where he recorded samples of Icelandic stones rubbing together and turned them into beats. Once the original ideas are in place, the musicians craft the songs in the studio. While the band’s music has dark overtones, a sense of humor comes across in songs like “The Robot Has Got The Blues,” and in the quirky melodic turns of the aquatic “W
Ringsted shines brightest on a risky cover of Joy Division’s beloved “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” a dramatically different take on a classic that was recorded as a request from Thule Musik’s owner. “He wanted to hear a chillout version with female vocals,” Asgeirsson notes. “The result was very surprising, and everybody liked it, so we decided to put it alongside the other tracks we’d previously recorded for Automagic
Critically praised throughout Europe, Automagic is a wondrous album that pairs Asgeirsson’s intricate sound construction s with a potent rhythm section and the haunting, otherworldly vocals of Gudridur Ringsted. Her ethereal singing peppers a record that flits between ambient dream pop and slightly menacing electro-orga n i c music with beats.
Worm Is Green started as the bedroom electronica project of Arni Asgeirsson, who soon enlisted longtime friends from his hometown of Akranes, Iceland (population 5,500) to flesh out his melodic soundscapes. Solidifying into a group, Worm Is Green began recording the songs that would become Automagic, released overseas last year on Iceland’s Thule Musik (home of Mum and The Funerals) and now available in the U.S. on The Arena Rock Recording Co.
