Mammút debut video for their cover of Cher’s 1998 hit “Believe” – UK tour announced for November with label mates Broen

October 2, 2017

Mammút are pleased to debut the video for their cover of Cher’s massive 1990s club hit “Believe”. Directed by Hawk Björgvinsson and featuring the band on karaoke + a pack of huskie dogs, Mammút had the below to say about the video…

“Inside a disco taxi in Austin Texas back in 2007, we randomly chose Cher’s Believe on a karaoke machine in the back, and that moment and song got burned in to our musical hearts.

When we hear it our eyes fill up with tears or we burst into singing along. Now, 10 years later it has a whole new meaning to us because of the question in the song, do you believe in life after love?  It really hits us and we can’t figure out the answer, so we made a cover.”

Mammút have also announced news of a November UK tour along with Bella Union label mates Broen. Dates/info below:
Wednesday 22nd November – BRIGHTON – The Hope And Ruin tickets

Icelandic bands often resemble a force of nature, and Mammút are no exception. What’s more, the quintet’s spectacular new album Kinder Versions, released in July on Bella Union, is exactly the kind of volcanic presence sorely lacking in 21st century rock. Likewise their unpredictable and uncategorisable shapeshifting sound, like a very modern twist on psychedelia.
Kinder Versions is available now on Bella Union.
