You broke your notes...

Over on the ever de-gorgeous PopMuse I came across this little nugget he broke off an Icelandic glacier and offered to the world. By the brilliantly monickered band, FM Belfast, it's a sweet pop gem about a broken keyboard. A synth to be precise. Synthia is licky-licious with a gorgeous Annie-type melody over a boombox beat.

Synthia - FM Belfast

They formed in 2005 as a duo with Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson(Plúseinn) and Lóa Hlín Hjálmtýsdóttir - so obviously copied and pasted there - and now go all the way up to eight bods on stage depending on who's up for it. Iceland Airwaves Music Festival has a profile here.

And for some reason, the first time I heard Synthia I sang Shalamar's Make That Move over it in my lil' ole music-sozzled brain.
