Himbrimi Bunk Bar 1The band Himbrimi is releasing their debut album. They have completed the recording at Studio Geimsteinn and various other locations. The material is being mixed at Great Eastern Studios in London at the moment. Himbrimi’s goal now is to gather the necessary funds for a release this fall.

Himbrimi has been active for two years and during that time played extensively in Iceland, including the festivals Iceland Airwaves and Aldrei fór ég suður in Ísafjörður. Earlier this year the band was nominated for two awards at the 365 Media Music awards (Best new band and Margrét, as best singer).

Himbrimi has released two songs that both have been in the local charts and in radio rotation. They have also made two music videos, one of which was a live performance.

This crowdfunding venture on Karolina Fund is to support their first album with an expected release date in November. They have been active for two years now and have been busy like bees during that time. Now they are super excited awaiting their album to see the light of day. There are five members in the band and we all have a deep need for creativity. Music is their passion in life and we love every aspect of it; especially performing it live for you.
