Ampop is an Icelandic melodic-pop/rock band from Reykjavík, Iceland. Founded in 1998 by Kjartan F. Olafsson and Biggi Hilmarsson, the name of the band is actually the name of the first song they ever wrote, and is made from the words ambient and pop, which they thought was the definition of the music they were making at that time.
The band was originally a duo, but before making their third album they added a drummer to the band. The band currently consists of 3 members:
Biggi Hilmarsson: Guitar, vocals
Kjartan F. Olafsson: keyboards
Jón Geir Jóhansson: drums
