múm was formed in 1997 and was originally a duo of Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, but has in its 12 years of existence expanded and contracted in an irregular pulse, like a jittery mammalian heart. They have recorded and released five studio albums and an endless catalog of smaller releases and side projects off the beaten track.
