Song of the 144. Week: Nóra "Opin fyrir morði"

The 144. Song of the Week is Nóra‘s “Opin fyrir morði.
The band Nóra traces its roots back to a dark garage on the west side of Reykjavik. There, brother & sister Egill Viðarsson (vocals, guitar) & Auður Viðarsdóttir (vocals, keyboards), started making music back in 2006, along with their good friend Hrafn Fritzson on bass. The band was fully formed two years later when the trio was joined by drummer Bragi Páll Sigurðarson and guitar/mandolin/whatever-ist Frank Arthur Blöndahl Cassata. The band was quite busy in 2009, playing local venues and festivals.
