About Grúska Babúska

The Icelandic band Grúska Babúska was formed in 2011. The band performs playful tunes, layering flute, violin, melodica, synths, glockenspiel, music box, drums, percussions, beats and other noises, electronica and vocals. This soundscape is simply bound to result in an electronic, melodic, acoustic, and twisted Icelandic folk fairytale sound…
Grúska Babúska released their debut album in March 2013 with the UK label Static Caravan, on a usb babushka doll. The songs are all written in Icelandic, co-produced by Mike Lindsay (Tunng, Cheek Mountain Thief) and mixed at Greenhouse studios in Iceland (Sam Amidon, Paul Evans and more).

At Iceland Airwaves in 2013, they released their B-sides in wooden babushkas containing an download code to 4 tunes.

Releases and performances

In 2015 Grúska Babúska released their 5 video series, where each single came with a video, all directed by female film makers and artists. https://goo.gl/jnnKan (direct link).

Grúska Babúska music has been described to range from the Notwist to old Icelandic folk rhymes to 70´s children´s TV music, and also from Múm meets the Knife.…. Well, or simply like the most common description: it can´t really be placed anywhere.

Grúska Babúska has performed at numerous shows in Iceland, where they focus on putting up their own shows in inspiring spaces and places in and around Reykjavík, such as Laugarnestangi, the old Salt fishing factory in Grandi and in Nauthólsvík. The band has also played Iceland Airwaves music festival in Reykjavík a couple of times, and toured in the UK a couple of times, now last in March 2016.
