Berndsen ásamt One Week Wonder

Um viðburðinn

One week wonder : A trio from Iceland formed in 2014. The trio went to Berlin to study sound engineering and during their stay they started to record songs with references to bands like Pink Floyd, Air and also movie composer Ennio Morricone. This wild mix of influences translated into as somehow familiar, but a unique personal style of the group. The voice of Magnús Benedikt Sigurðsson captivates the listener with it's warm and heartfelt tone and goes well with group’s vintage sound reminding of old movies. Árni Guðjónsson on keys and Helgi Kristjánsson on drums, both deliver sharp, mesmerizing performance. They are also admirers of the real analog and did their recordings on tape. But the 24 track tape machine is not what makes their music special. Sometimes it’s melancholic, sometimes political, but the main thread that goes through all songs is a journey. The trio recently released it’s debut EP album ‘Mars’, available on Spotify.

Berndsen : Red-bearded pop auteur Berndsen mines the 1980s for inspiration , retro music. Synth bass, programmed drums, guitar solos, retro-futurist aesthetics and dramatic vocals make for an intoxicating, atmospheric, analogue-feeling sound, reminiscent of everything from Michael Jackson to Kraftwerk to The Eurythmics to fellow revivalists like Glass Candy, Dreamtrak and Chromeo. Infinite amounts of fun live
