The music of Epic Rain is rooted in underground hip-hop, but in later years they have widened the horizon and explored various music styles, including cabaret, dark folk, country and blues. Out of these traditional genres they have created a new and fascinating domain of sounds.
A great number of talented musicians from the whole spectrum of Icelandic music have collaborated with Epic Rain, from hip-hop and rock as well as from the symphony orchestra.
Epic Rain’s lyrics are evocative and haunting. They describe in picturesque detail persons, their thoughts and actions in an insecure and menacing world, often illustrating a bleak reality.
In concerts, Epic Rain are performers, the lyrics and the music are the heart of their artistry, but with gestures and props they convey a sense of an extra dimension.
