"Ourlives are an explosive, emotive, expansive four-piece, poised and ready at the start of their music recording lives -- a band clearly capable of injecting their own edge and making powerful forward-looking, life-touching music. Hailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, the music they make is a dramatic crossover hybrid of melodic intelligent progressive rock and warm powerful emotional pop."

Ourlives is a band made up of Leifur (Vocal / Guitars),  Bjössi (Bass / Keys / B.Vocals), Garðar (Drums), Hálfdán (Bass /guitar). The reminds me another great band from Iceland, Dikta

Ourlives had released their debut album "We Lost The Race" in 2008. Their track “Núna” caught the attention of Grammy award-winning producer David Bottrill, who brought them to Canada to record three more songs for the album.

In 2011, they released their debut US album "Out Of Place".  When you listen to the songs of "Out of Place", each track becomes quickly a real addiction. This Ep is available on bandcamp, amazon and itunes. 

"They are not a band afraid to play with the warmth of old-school guitars, with the analogue dust of keyboards, with the power of silence, or the strength that can be found in their harmonious vocals. Neither are they a band afraid of soothing, soaring melodies, of emotional choruses, and the idea that less is often so much more. The foursome are fusing their ambitious ideas together to produce a sound that's as potentially epic as their Icelandic landscape and they do this without ever losing sight of the power and strength of pop and the art of keeping it simple."
