Miri is a band of four guys from the remote east fjords of Iceland. They have been making their strange instrumental post-rock dance music since 2006. With countless shows under their belts, they have gained a reputation as an energetic and playful live band, infamous for their epic, mid-song speeches about life, synchronized dance moves, happiness and peace. Okkar is Miri's first full-length release. Okkar can be described as an instrumental alternative rock album (one song has some vocals). It treads lightly on the verge of being a post-rock album, but without the dramatic gloom often attached to such music. Okkar was recorded, produced and mixed by Curver (Ghostigital). Amongst the guests on this album are a whole brass quartet, Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason (múm, FM Belfast) who sings and plays the harmonica and Ólafur Björn Ólafsson (Benni Hemm Hemm, Stórsveit Nix Nolte) on xylophone and marimba.
