Does anyone know of any good Icelandic bands? (besides Of Monsters and Men, obviously =). Preferably bands with songs in Icelandic. Style I'm looking for is Indie Folk/Rock, but I'll give any a listen (clean lyrics, please).

I've found one so far called Kaleo that has a beautiful Icelandic song, Vor í Vaglaskógi . I'll post the link below.

Sigur Rós, For a Minor Reflection, Seabear, Vök, Agent Fresco, Hjaltalín, Árstíðir, Mammút, Dikta, Valdimar, Mínus, Mono Town, Fufanu (I really love), Klassart, and Nanook (this one is actually a Greenlandic band but still worth a look. They're actually one of my favorites).

Not all of them have songs in Icelandic but a decent amount does..

I really love Icelandic bands :)

í svörtum fötum is my favorite band :) I'd also recommend checking out Hvanndalsbræður, they're fun, and Gréta Salóme has some good indie sounds. Páll Óskar is more pop, but he's worth checking out.

If you have any taste for something heavier, you might try Skálmöld. The lyrics are all in Icelandic, and they adapt a lot of traditional Icelandic musical forms for their brand of folk metal, to boot.

I like Pascal Pinon. Their music is sort of mellow Folk/Pop. They have some songs in English and some in Icelandic. Here's an Icelandic one: https://youtu.be/pdXdY01q-hY
