These guys are one of my favourite bands alltime, their music is just wonderful. I am so happy that they will be performing during Airwaves.
Agent Fresco is made up with four members: Arnór Dan Arnarson, vocalist, Hrafnkell Örn Guðjónsson, drummer, Vignir Rafn Hilmarson, bassist and Þórarinn guðnason, on guitar and piano.
The band won the Músíktilraunir band contest ( battle of the bands) in 2008, and have since then risen to the top of the icelandic music scene as one of the best, and most original bands in Iceland today.
Their first album - a 17 track album named A long time listening was released in November 2010 and has received raving reviews since. For example Morgunblaðið had this to say: “an amazing album by the best rock band in the country today”
Not too bad a review, eh ?
They also received the highest rating possible in Kerrang! magazine for their album , as well as a great review: "They're a a remarkable band, a head-spinning amalgam of sound and fury, which can recall Rage Against The Machine, System Of A Down, Queen and Gang Of Four within a single song and then head in 20 different directions at once."
Agent Fresco are also a great live band, I have seen them in a couple of gigs here in Iceland and never been dissapointed with them .
I would say that these guys are a must see, during Iceland Airwaves if you are interested in truly good music .
Great song !
this one too:
and here at the final evening of Músíktilraunir in 2009
So , I want to hear from you guys:
