Little video of Amina (Amiina) performing live at The Tivoli

Here's a little video I took at of Amina supporting Sigur Ros at The Tivoli, Brisbane on 15th April 2006. Amina are four Icelandic girls who play strings and other bits and pieces for Sigur Ros. They also make their own mostly instrumental music with unusual instruments like windup music boxes, toy bells, a saw, and wine glasses as well as little keyboards, xylophones and glockenspiels. Sometimes their mac chips in some bass or mellow beats. Anyway, hope you enjoy it as much as I did, which is quite a lot. :) If you like it then check out their palindromically titled EP, AnimaminA and a 30 minute video on YouTube of Amina from an Icelandic TV show featuring five songs and an interview. Did I mention how cute they are? See what I mean?

Update, 27-Apr-06
The song is called "Seoul" and Amina have changed their name (again, I think they were originally called Anima) to Amiina to because of a Tunisian singer called Amina Annabi. Blimey.
