Hatched in a dim lit attic in Reykjavic, at the dawn of 2006 Rökkurró’s five founding members began conversing in smooth tones, drawing inspiration from the silky sunrays that crept through the windows. The result of this covenant was displayed to the public’s eager eyes in March that same year and with their captivating atmosphere and ethereal vocals they instantly carved their niche in the already saturated Reykjavík music scene.
A self-released 4 track EP hit the streets only 6 months after they had formed and this EP, along with a powerful performance on one of the off-venue shows at Iceland Airwaves 2006, landed them a record deal with local label 12 Tónar. Rökkurró present music that is at once soothing and forceful. The folk-tinged reverie of the wailing accordion and carefully plucked guitars sends you off sailing through the clouds while the dramatic cello and clever drumming demand your full attention.
The fall of 2007 “Það Kólnar Í Kvöld” saw the light of day, a debut album with a sound more mature than the age of the members suggest. It received great critical acclaim and was followed by tour dates with Múm and Ólafur Arnalds.
Three years later Rökkurró return with their brand new album “Í Annan Heim”.
