7″ Vinyl To Be Released March 25th

“gloriously kitchy, Commodore-64-style digipop, sung in gleefully off-kilter accented English. Kind of like a low-fi version of Röyksopp.” — SPIN

“sure to spice up any party, catching an FM Belfast live show is sure to spice up your entire life.” — Zink

“Icelandic synth pop with tongue merrily in cheek… a frothy pleasure.” — Q Magazine

Reykjavik-based electro-pop group FM Belfast is excited to announce signing to Morr Music for the release of their highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s debut album, How To Make Friends. The new album, Don’t Want To Sleep, will hit the streets come June, but to shorten the wait and to celebrate the new partnership with Morr Music, the colorful Iceland-trio has arranged for a re-release of their hit single, “Underwear”, as they hit the US for shows in NYC and at SXSW in Austin. Dates below.

The three-track “Underwear” single (including the original version, a live version also featured in the incredible forthcoming documentary “Backyard”, and an acoustic cover version by Prins Póló) is available via iTunes now and will be released on a 7″ vinyl March 25th. “Underwear” has been a crowd favorite at FM Belfast’s energetic shows, including their notorious headlining performance at Iceland Airwaves, which  have become a festival tradition, and appearances at more than 50 festivals throughout Europe.
