Syngja (Sing-ya)’s music is both haunting and timeless, creating Icelandic-folklore-infused psychedelic dream pop. Tyr Jami (The Winks) plays cello and sings, while manipulating samples of her great grandmother singing in Icelandic. Justin Guzzwell (People On Pause, The Crooks) sets an earthly foundation of synthesizers, drum machine and vocals. Syngja is preparing for the release of their EP “Echoing Rose”, developed at Arts Iceland in Ísafjörður, Iceland.
