Icelandic experimental band mum (with a lower-case "m" and pronounced moom) will open its European tour at Tel Aviv's Barby Club on October 2. Seven musicians will perform their indie-pop combination of electronic music and soft vocals, accompanied by traditional acoustic instruments and some less conventional ones. The band was begun in 1997 by Gunnar Om Tynes and Orvar Poreyjarson Smarason and is now considered Iceland's No. 2 band (after Sigur Ros).
