Exclusive album release show

In celebration of GusGus latest album 'Lies Are More Flexible' Sónar Reykjavík is proud to introduce this exclusive album release show.

GusGus was initially formed in 1995 as a film/music collective. After striking a deal with 4AD in 1996 they became one of the most sought after electronic music acts out of Iceland. With the release of Polydistortion (4AD/Warner) in 1997, GusGus solidified their worldwide status to sold-out shows all over the world. GusGus has had a span of nearly two decades in which they have done nearly every style of electronic influenced music. From techno to trip-hop, from house to progressive house/trance to pop, this collective has made each style their own.

The current line up consists of founding members: Biggi Veira and Daníel Ágúst. The combination of the vocal artistry of Daní Ágúst surrounded by mesmerizing electronics, haunting grooves, with subtle string and brass arrangements blending in, creates a very unique and powerful sound produced by mastermind Biggi Veira which has been leaving audiences clamoring for more.
