Pink Street Boys [IS]
Pink Street Boys formed in 2013 on Pink Street, Kópavogur, an industrial Icelandic suburb known for not that much. PSB ditched their early psych days in favour of developing their high- octane brand of fierce garage rock, and snagged themselves the unrivalled accolade of loudest band in Iceland.
Following the release of 2014’s Trash From The Boys (Lady Boy Records), PSB were nominated for the Nordic Music Prize and went on to be crowned best live band in Iceland by The Reykjavík Grapevine. Their second debut, Hits #1 (12 Tónar) was voted ‘Best Icelandic Album of 2015’ by the iconic music guru, Dr. Gunni.
In November, PSB caught the attention of legendary journalist David Fricke and were featured in Rolling Stone’s ‘10 Best Things We Saw At Iceland Airwaves 2015.’ The band were subsequently invited to play at Eurosonic Noorderslag in January 2016, where they injected their ‘no nonsense garage punk’ (Drowned In Sound) to new audiences. Their first UK/European tour in March/April 2016 was a success.
The band released their third album, Smells Like Boys (12 Tónar), in October 2017 and were again featured in articles by Rolling Stone, Stereogum etc. following their performances at Iceland Airwaves 2017.
