A progressive rock band from Kópavogur, a suburb of Reykjavik, Iceland. The Cabinets are cut from the same Nordic cloth as Björk and Sigur-Rós. The dancy 5-piece scored a local radio hit with their first EP "Albatross' Delight" in 2001. You couldn't walk down the streets of Reykjavik that summer without hearing their dance-pop cover of "Maria" from West Side Story blaring out of all of the clubs.

The Cabinets were overrun with their success and lived the indie-rockstar life of excess that they'd always dreamed of.

The band took a much-needed break for most of 2002. They reunited in October with a major-label recording contract to record their first LP.
