The four women of Amiina create fragile, beautiful works that sparkle like newly formed icicles in the December sun. Crafted from shimmering bells and somber strings they, like many of their Icelandic compatriots echo the cold quiet landscapes of their homeland. A chill nibbles at the edges of every note and you can practically smell the threat of snow in the air as they unfold tiny glacial epics. Their new single Seoul is released on friends and collaborators Sigor Ros' label The Worker's Institute. The single is a prelude to an album set to be released around spring of next year.

If you're talking about Amina, Sigur Ros' string ensemble that also does solo work, it's actually spelled with one "i." I saw them last september & purchased the EP.

Yes and no. In March 2006 Amína changed their name to Amiina to eliminate confusion with the Tunisian singer Amina.

Yes this is correct. Amina did change their name to avoid the confusion. On all further releases they will be spelled with the two i's - Amiina.
