Gaui has been writing songs on and off for many years but it wasn't until summer 2012 he started Volcano Victims when he moved to Berlin. Hanna joined him early on and since then they have been the core of the band. Occasionally they got help from Mitsuhiro the guitar hero on their live shows but he has sadly moved back to Japan. Sophie joined in May 2015 to play the guitar and synth because Hanna moved to the bass because she's one groovy girl. In early 2016 Sophie left the band to concentrate on her own music. Shortly after Michael (guitar) and Leah (synth, backing vocals) joined. The band is currently working on new and exciting songs that shows a more playful songwriting.
The band's style of music varies from dark, dreamy and melancholic songs that are influenced by the Icelandic dark winters to more uplifting melodic indie. This variety of styles makes their live performances pleasant to watch.
Their first EP was released in June 2014. It contains 4 dark and melancholic songs. Since then their songs have become more melodic and cheerful but the melancholic undertones are never far behind. You can listen and download the EP here: https://volcanovictims.bandcamp.com/
