Be friends with FM Belfast
Do you really think that Iceland is all about melancholy, coldness and dark melodies? No it is not at all! FM Belfast is here to shift all your past thoughts about this little and cold country and people living there.
These three people started everything as a hobby and the band thing progressed into a fulltime job. Some say that they're Iceland's best kept secret and that!s true! And they are no more a secret because they released their debut from Kimi / Morr Records sometime ago and I am really happy that Loa found some time to answer my questions.
You should really listen to their soft, pop based electronic melodies and vocals. FM Belfast is one of the most beautiful upcoming bands in the scene and their music will really catch you right form the heart. I have not seen that intimnate and sincere melodies since ages!
As the band, your attitude looks so intimate. And listening to your music is like attending to a friend's party at a little bar you usually go. So warm and friendly! How did you manage to obtain this naturalness and warmth?
Thank you for saying that. We have been friends for a long time. Maybe that is the vibe you get from us. And I think we are rather friendly people, at least I hope so.
You are from a very cold country but you are not as 'cool' or cold as the other old bands from your soil. You are rather sociable and willing to give a secret in each song of yours, did you really?
Cool, haha, I don´t think we are very good at being cool. Whenever I´ve tried to be cool something bad happens, a bird shits on my head or something like that. Did we give secrets? I´m not sure. I can´t really keep secrets because I have a trouble knowing what is a secret and what is not.
You once defined your music as 'dance music with occasional drama'. Critics call it as electro-indie-synth pop from Iceland. Do you really care on genres or forms while writing music?
Nope, we don´t think about that. I think it would be weird for me to decide a genre before I do something. I guess we do electro indie synth pop because that´s what it ends up being when we do it
