On the wildly imaginative album Clangour
, Sin Fang Bous
achieves a level of palpable elegance when synthetic noise merges with folk sensibility. Following the success of Iceland-based group, Seabear, frontman Sindri Mar Sigfusson departs from standard pop fare, in favor of more experimental composition that is conceptual and highly effective. The artist utilizes a myriad of mechanical sounds and reverberations, outlining every track with any number of frantic clicks, pings and acerbic screeches. The final product however, is hardly a swarm of frenetic noise. Sigfusson's tracks are a whirlwind of excitement and heightened emotional experience.
