Silla Thorarensen (drums and vocals) and Julius Pollux Rothlaender (bass guitar and toe-synths) also have their own headline show at London’s Shacklewell Arms on October 2. The pair also have a new video for their song, My Knee Against Kyriarchy.

It follows a successful year for the twosome who released their debut album, Sometimes Depressed… But Always Antifascist, to acclaim earlier in 2021. “More sweet songs against bad things,” is what Silla and Julius were thinking when writing My Knee Against Kyriarchy.

BSÍ is two best friends rumbling and rolling through life, not taking themselves too seriously and struggling with self-doubts and imperfection, unafraid to just do and be what, or however they feel. The video was created by Susan Creamcheese (Vilhjálmur Yngvi Hjálmarsson), who, like BSÍ, is part of Reykjavík’s DIT (do-it-together) music and art collective.
