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.
