In 1996 Pornopop began working together in their parents' basement, making music with their Roland drum machine. Two months later they headed into late-night sessions in studios all over Reykjavík, recording at nights - sleeping at days. The outcome was the highly acclaimed Blue, a 2 CD mixing dark ambient with rock. After the release Pornopop played few gigs with Sigur Rós and Fuck before vanishing into the basement again.
In 2006 Pornopop released …and the Slow Songs About the Dead Calm in Your Arms which they recorded with their friend, Arnar Helgi Aðalsteinsson, from IDM/experimental band Plat.
Pornopop released their third album Two Lazy Tigers in 2012.
