Mógil skapar einstakan hljóðheim og vefur saman klassík og þjóðlagatónlist á minímalískan og tilfinningaþrúngin hátt.
Hljómsveitin hefur gefið út diskanna “Ró” 2008 og “Í stillunni hljómar” 2011. Báðir diskarnir hafa fengið góða dóma bæði hérlendis og erlendis.

Mógil is an Iceland-based band whose music blends folk, classical, minimal and post-rock into a universe that is completely their own. The lyrics are inspired by Icelandic folklore and current events and tell the emotional stories of humans and mermen alike.
The world of Mógil is atmospheric, intimate and mysterious. It is always warm, be it from the midnight sun in summertime or the blaze of a fireplace in wintertime. The tension between the crystal-clear soprano and the very contemporary accompaniment together make for a timeles sound that knows no borders.
Mógil has performed at Iceland Airwaves, Reykjavík Jazz Festival and WOMEX
World Festival and done several tours of Northern Europe. They released Ró in 2008, followed by Í stillunni hljómar
in 2011, with a new album upcoming in 2016. Their music has been called
“exquisite from beginning to end” (Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, NYC) and proclaimed as “music that touches the soul” (The Silent Ballet, NYC).
