Grímulaust is CJC first album.

Released the 2nd june 2021, the album was recorded over 2 weekends in january and april 2021 by Einar Vilberg at studio Hljóðverk. Recording, mixing and mastering is by Einar Vilberg.

There are 8 songs on the album and the topics are all over the place, from social meda influencers to murder.

Jazzklúbburinn (The Jazz Club) was inspired by a trip Elli went on in 2018 to Chernobyl. Langar (Want) is a song about what most people wanna do after a long time covid quarantine, intimacy and touch. Sumarið er allt of stutt (The summer is to short) was an attempt to write uplifting lyrics to even out somewhat horrible stories on the other songs. Instarass (Instabutt) tackles the social media instagram influencer nonsens and how you are never getting younger no matter how much you stretch your face. Morð (Murder) is a story about an old murdercase in Iceland. Ruðvalgur tackles depression and stress and how that feel can take over your life. Svarta úti skrímslið (Black out monster) is about a person that can´t handle the booze and ends in a black out.

All music is written and performed by Chernobyl Jazz Club.

This lineup has been active since the autumn of 2020 when Amalia joined the band.
