MAMMÚT were founded in down town Reykjavík by five 13 year old kids back in 2003.
They have grown well known in their home country, Iceland, with more than six singles hitting the top of the charts on the national radio station and two gold records. Their third album, Komdu til mín svarta systir, won them three out of seven nominations at the Icelandic Music Awards for best song (Salt) best album and the best album cover of the year.
In 2015, they signed to Bella Union and their first label outside Iceland. A few months later they released an EP, Rivers End. In 2017, the 14th of July, their debut LP Kinder Versions was released outside of Iceland. Voted by Rolling Stone as one of the 10 best things they saw at Iceland Airwaves in 2016, MAMMÚT are not to be missed at Larmer Tree 2018.
“It is the sound of a band that could do anything, go anywhere, and have the conviction to carry through on every scrap of potential. It’s the sound of fearlessness.” LINE OF BEST FIT – 9.5/10
