If exotic bands are your thing, then you’re in for a treat. Seabear is an Icelandic band that plays a soft melodic mix of folk and pop music. In March, they released their second full-length, We Built A Fire. Songs from Seabear have been used in many popular television shows including Gossip Girl and Grey’s Anatomy. Seabear started their US tour during South By Southwest earlier this year, and will be in New York City at Highline Ballroom on Oct. 16 with North Highlands. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show. Tickets will be $15.
