Icelandic Band


Icelandic band Hugar, Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson, have forged a musical lane of their own with a genre-defying sound, mixing classical, electronic and post-rock elements.

Combining a shared passion for music and an impressive resume working alongside fellow Icelandic luminaries Björk, Sigur Rós, Ólafur Arnalds and Johann Johannson, the longtime friends began writing music together in 2013 and released their independent self-titled debut album Hugar.

Signed exclusively to Sony Music Masterworks they’ve released their second longplayer Varða and the soundtrack album The Vasulka Effect – Music for the Motion Picture. Þjóðlög / Folk Songs marks their first release on XXIM Records, with their third full album projected for release later this year.
