Live Video: Mammút

In the microcosm of Iceland’s music scene, where bands tend to germinate, blossom and wither as if viewed on time-lapse, the young twenty-somethings of Mammút might be seen as practically prehistoric. The five members literally grew up together during their decade as one of Iceland’s most critically acclaimed bands and, with the release of River’s End, their first English-language EP, Mammút are now poised to charge into the world beyond, sharing their enormous cathartic energy with many more listeners. Last month, KEXP brought the band to Seattle for their debut Northwest appearance at our sister city showcase, Reykjavik Calling, and welcomed them to the KEXP studio for the first time ever – after recording them six times previously in Iceland! – for another stunning and dynamic performance.
