CRYPTOCHROME, in their new formation, are a boundary-pushing electronic folk rap band
based in Reykjavík, Iceland, who also claim London, Berlin, Hamburg and Los Angeles as
their home towns. They started work as a four member outfit in September 2014, recording
their current album ‘More Human’ in a disused hydraulic power station in the North of
Iceland. Since the first of January 2016, they have commenced their ‘video-a-month’
release plan, publishing a music video for each of the 11 tracks of the album, with the final
video set to drop on the 11th of November, 2016.
Cryptochrome’s first album, ‘Anik of Dark Circle presents: Cryptochrome’, was released in
2013 on UK based label Defcon Records.
The band’s four members are vocalists/songwriters Una and Anik, beatmaker/dj S.O.N. and
producer/engineer Leigh. Individually they all have many years’ experience releasing and
collaborating with the likes of Foreign Beggars, Looptroop, and Dj Vadim to name a few.
