Welcome to the website of 12 Tónar – record shop – record label

The 12 Tónar shop is known as a friendly place where you can sit down, listen to a wide selection of music on two floors, enjoy free espresso, read magazines or browse our juicy collection of rock literature. We sometimes have concerts in our shop. Especially on Fridays during the summer when our lovely garden becomes the venue for all kinds of music. In 2006 the 12 Tónar shop in Reykjavik was awarded the prestigious title Shop of the Year by the City of Reykjavik.

12 Tónar is also an important independent record label. Our position as a label is unique as we regularly meet with many musicians in our shop. Therefore we are in good contact with emerging talent.

Since 2003 we have released more than 70 albums from a variety of musical genres and artists. A number of our releases have been licensed to territories like Japan, US, and Korea.
