Nóra, entered a state of hiatus. Both have no formal musical training, but have taught themselves (and each
other) to operate various instruments, with equally varying success…
Both members sing and play a number of instruments throughout their songs, although Egill’s primary instrument
is the keyboard while Bjarki’s is the guitar.
While the bands musical direction and style is ever-changing, Andy Svarthol’s current sound ranges from upbeat
pop in the same vein as earlier musical projects (Nóra), to experimental noise rock. They combine melodic keyboard playing with distinct guitar and synthesizer sounds to compliment
the brothers’ harmonizing vocals.
Influences include The Zombies, Beach House, The Everly Brothers, Massive Attack and Animal Collective.
