(1983)

Miranda was an album released in December 1983 by Icelandic band Tappi Tíkarrass, which was led by singer Björk.
With Miranda the band switched their music style to disco music, pop melodies and mellow songs counteracting their previous punk EP, Bitið fast í vitið in 1982. Also in this album, vocalist Eyþór Árnalds was replaced in most of the songs, performing only two tracks: the title song and another version called “Mýrin Andar”.
The inner sleeve featured the Björk’s handwritten lyrics of “Mýrin Andar” and a black and white child illustration.

Tappi Tíkarrass members:

  • Björk Guðmundsdóttir: vocals and keyboards.
  • Eyþór Árnalds
  • Jakob Smári Magnússon: bass.
  • Eyjólfur Jóhannsson: guitar.
  • Oddur F. Sigurbjörnsson: drums.
