Cheek Mountain Thief is a new project from Mike Lindsay, founding member of the UK twisted acid folk band Tunng. He now lives in Iceland where he has formed a band with people from Husavik and Reykjavík.
Mike Lindsay says that his love affair with Iceland began in 2006. It involved a girl, Harpa, and an unforgettable New Year’s Eve party. In 2011, Lindsay took to Iceland to rekindle that romance, and to record a bewitching new album under the name Cheek Mountain Thief inspired by the landscape and the people of Iceland.
They are signed on independent record label Full Time Hobby.
Their first album received very good reviews.
