Seabear is an indie folk band from Reykjavík, Iceland. Although hailing from Iceland, they sing primarily in English. Seabear started in 2000 as Sindri Már Sigfússon's solo project and then turned into a band when Sindri was asked to open for The Books in Berlin. Never having performed his songs live, he asked two of his friends, Guðbjörg Hlín Guðmundsdóttir and Örn Ingi Ágústsson, to join him. After some time playing live and practicing together, they both decided to join the band. The current participating members are: Sindri Már Sigfússon, Uðbjörg Hlín Guðmundsdóttir, Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir, Halldór Ragnarsson, Örn Ingi Ágústsson, Kjartan Bragi Bjarnason & Sóley Stefánsdóttir.Read More...
Their music is subdued and mellow folk pop, with hints of piano, violin, acoustic guitar and atmospheric vocals, all carefully squeezed through a lo-fi filter.
They released their first full-length album, The Ghost That Carried Us Away, in Autumn 2007 under Morr Music. Sindri also has an solo-artist EP under the name Seabear entitled Singing Arc EP.
Seabear has announced, via their myspace, that they are working on a new album which they hope to release in February or March 2010.
Have now released a new 7" Lion Face Boy/Cold Summer http://www.anost.net/Labels/Morr-Music-Shop/Seabear-Lion-Face-Boy-Cold-Summer.html you can listen to the songs on the same site.

- LyricsWhen the birds are sleeping
That's when the trees sing
You left your winter clothes
And your teeth marks in my skin
So shake the leaves off the trees
- LyricsYou left your black gloves on my table
You left your dying horse in the stable
Thinking of a way to get you to stay
And up I was to fight the wind and waves for you
Im an owl with giant eyes

It's been a long time since
I got my hands on your teenage poems
It's the only poison that I like
