"It is the year 1998: What might have been the first decade in the history of pop music that was characterized by an overwhelming sense of fragmentation is drawing to a close. Anything goes: guitars & electro, retro sounds or wicked forays into the digitized future. Pop hasn't sounded this optimistic and upbeat in a while, and there's currently no need for Weltschmerz in Indie anymore. Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Ţóreyjarson Smárason have been making music together as múm for about a year at this point - though it's not like anyone really took note of them or cared back in 1998. Early Birds is all about those days: It's a compilation of 15 tracks, all of them recorded between 1998-2000 and long-lost or extremely rare, taken from demo tapes or limited edition vinyl releases. Accordingly, you'll find not only a track from the aforementioned theater production, but also the yet-unreleased "Hvernig á ađ sćra vini sína", a fan favorite ever since, that was included on the soundtrack to the movie The Exploding Girl."
