So there's this band in the Faroe Islands called Frændur and people say they're the most popular band ever in that country. They've been around for 25 years and had a string of hits in the 1980s. And that's just about all I know about them. Information about Frændur is extremely difficult to find in English.

But I did find this video. It's recorded on someone's cell phone or something like that, so it's hardly a polished music video. But it gives a pretty good idea of why these guys have been so popular for so long: they write really catchy songs. I don't understand a word of Faroese and I have no idea what this song is about, but I can't stop singing it.

So listen and enjoy, but be warned, this may be habit forming:
