A progressive rock band from Kópavogur
, a suburb of Reykjavik
. The Cabinets are cut from the same Nordic cloth as Björk
. 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
" 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.
