Hraun! - The band!
Hraun was founded in the summer of 2003 by Svavar Knútur Kristinsson and his friends, Loftur Sigurður Loftsson, Jón Geir Jóhannsson and Guðmundur Stefán Þorvaldsson. It is a simple band, playing mostly simple music. We are also very fun oriented, so we try to maintain a happy atmosphere when we play, despite all of the melancholy.
The main philosophy of Hraun! is to be a bit like lava, rough, rumbling, simple, warm and moving. We try not to confine ourselves to any special genre, but try to stay true to the original point of music, which is to move people in some way or another.
Hraun's Manifesto revolves around our experiment and attempt to bridge the gap between entertainment and art. To provide an entertaining concert which is also enlighting in some way. To be fun artists or mind enlighting entertainers.
