Amina changes name to Amiina, tours 4 continents with Sigur Ros

By March 27, 2006No Comments



The all-female Icelandic quartet, formerly known as Amina, has changed the spelling of its name to Amiina (pronounced Ah-mee-na) and will be touring with Sigur Ros in the UK, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand and the US over the next three months. The name change was a decision the band reached on its own, and was done in an effort to avoid being confused with several artists around the world with similar names (just take a look at for examples). Amiina released an EP last year on the Worker’s Institute label and will follow it up later in 2006 with its first full-length, which is nearing completion now, but is still without an official title or final track listing. In addition to serving as the opening act for Sigur Ros, the band does double duty and performs with the band as its string section as well.
