Last week (17 June), Iceland celebrated their Icelandic National Day - celebrating 71 years since the foundation of The Republic of Iceland and the country's independence from Danish rule.

Now there are some truly great Danish bands out there at the moment too, and we're sure those 71 years have healed all wounds - but given that there isn't really a Denmark Day, we've decided to delve into Iceland's rich musical offerings.

From the brilliant Asgeir to the downbeat electronica of Mum via the trip hop stylings of Samaris, these are the 13 Icelandic bands you need in your life.

And yes, Bjork is in here. It's against the law to leave her off lists like this.
