Growing from one man to an eight-piece orchestral band with two recorded studio albums, we are so excited to welcome back San Fermin.

Upon releasing the album in 2011, Karazija then recruited Logi Guðmonsson on drums and the two toured Europe, eventually joining the Iceland Airwaves and ATP festival lineups, as well as supported indie favourites Soko and Ásgeir.

Now including Leifur Bjornsson on programming, Low Roar released their second album, ‘0’, co-produced by Andrew Scheps and Mike Lindsay (Tuung), featuring Icelandic darlings Amiina on strings, in 2014.
