Iceland Airwaves Preview: Oyama (WATCH)

An indie noise-rock band from Reykjavík, Oyama is a five-member group that has been making music together since the spring of 2012. With earlier songs off of their EP I Wanna more clearly reflecting their ‘90s alternative rock and shoegaze influences, their LP Coolboy adds more soft and drifting instrumentals to allow listeners an even dreamier experience. Expressive and symbolic lyrics are echoed through the soundscapes and flowing melodies. With this variety, listeners can find their favorite daydream tune or hardcore rock anthem. As 2016 will be Oyama’s fifth consecutive performance at Iceland Airwaves, attendees can expect a showcase of many new songs that are anticipated to be released on their next album coming in 2017.

Catch Oyama at Gaukurinn on Friday, November 4 at 12:30 a.m.
