FURA is a project combining the talents of vocalist Björt Sigfinnsdóttir and production duo Hallur Jónsson and Janus Rasmussen (also known from the bands Bloodgroup, Kiasmos, Byrta, Lily the kid). The nucleus of their work explores the contrast between dark beats, from the male production team, and the heightened, sensual, female voice of Sigfinnsdóttir, while embrasing the mystical nature of their home environment and the sense of isolation and emotion produced by its landscapes.
Björt has now teamed up with the danish drummer Emil Vissing and guitarist, backing vocalist and synthesizer player, Troels Holdt, together forming the live band of FURA. The newest addition to the band are the collaborating visual artists, Hilmar Guðjónsson and Rasmus Stride, who are now apart of FURA’s live performance team with their artistic and abstract video visuals.
This is FURA’s first time performing at LungA, in Björt’s home town, Seyðisfjörður.
