Silla & Julius started BSÍ under the premise of trying instruments they didn't know how to play, and it works!

BSÍ

Having started BSÍ under the premise of trying instruments they didn't know how to play, Silla Thorarensen (drums & vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar & toe-synths) understand their band as a playground for simply being who they are. Two best friends, rumbling and rolling through life, not taking themselves too seriously, struggling with self-doubts and imperfection while trying to see these as empowering virtues, unafraid to just do and be what—or however they feel.

BSÍ's debut album 'Sometimes depressed ... but always antifascist' (May 2022) is five songs of low-key heartbreak melancholy and five songs of riot grrrl lo-fi-cute-punk. The two different halves of the record touch upon the endless fall, vulnerability, and intimacy of loss and leaving – while on the other side celebrating sunny summer days, salty knees, and the idea of a feminist world revolution.

Watch the traffic, bring a dancer and a therapist, BSÍ is coming to your town!
