Since moving to Austin, Texas, over a year ago, the band's songs have been popping up on U.S. television and radio. "No Good" was used on the HBO series "Vinyl," produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, and was featured in the soundtrack. The single "Way Down We Go" has broken into the top 10 on the Adult Alternative chart and has been used in soundtracks, promotions and trailers for shows like "Orange is the New Black" and "Empire."


But the band also paid tribute to its homeland on the album with an Icelandic song, a haunting ballad called "Vor í Vaglaskogi." Julius Son said he was surprised by the reaction from American audiences when they played it, 개츠비카지노 [] so they felt it had to go on the new album

>"I think American music influenced me more than other people my age who maybe didn't connect as much," the 26-year-old said during a recent interview in Nashville, Tennessee, where the four-member band recorded its first U.S. album for Atlantic Records called "A/B." ''I am very influenced by music from the '50s, '60s and '70s as many people can probably hear. And then all the way back to the '30s and the Delta Blues.


>Produced by Jacquire King, who also produces the Kings of Leon, "A/B" — released this month — is a mix of Southern influences, from soft and sweet folk songs to blues rock and jagged '70s guitar anthems. The band even has a country-tinged tune, "Automobile," inspired by California and Mexico, two places that Julius Son had never visited before writing the song.
