Come On Let´s Party!
On the outskirts of Iceland… six hour drive away from the capital,Reykjavík and the conventional Icelandic music scene, a couple of friends got together to make some noise. The nation wide battle of the bands whose past participants include acts such as Of Monsters and Men, Sigur Rós and Mammút provided a once in a lifetime opportunity for the band and it’s members. As well as shining a spotlight on the band, most importantly it reassured the band that music was what they should be doing with their lives.
Since their victory at the Music Experiments, Rythmatik has been hard at work, releasing two EP albums in 2015 and 2016 as well as perfecting their live show, playing gigs at a great variety of venues and festivals.
In the summer of 2017 Rythmatik started working on their debut LP “Grin & Panic”. The album drew the interest of record labels in Germany and Rythmatik signed a licencing and distribution deal with Ice Will Melt Records. “Grin & Panic” is scheduled to be released in Germany in the spring of 2018.
That noise became what is know today as Rythmatik. An indie rock band at heart but not afraid to push genre expectations. What started as a project to break away from the monotonous day to day of the Icelandic fishing village soon became way more when Rythmatik won the Icelandic Music Experiments 2015 (Músíktilraunir).
