Hugar ‘Reykjavík’ : A gentle whim of recollection and respect towards the trip they’d took so long ago.

Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson are together, Hugar. And we’d called them “a synopsis in gradients and lovingly crafted shimmers in light, the artists render listeners into emotional dreams of another kind.”

When they independently released their self-titled debut album in 2014, they were a pair of talented, experienced local musicians from Seltjarnarnes, the smallest township in Iceland, just outside of Reykjavík.

Six years later, on the strength of that self-released free download, they had begun to collaborate with Iceland’s leading likeminded artists such as Ólafur Arnalds, Jóhann Jóhannson, Sigur Rós, and Björk

With their sophomore album ‘The Vasulka Effect’ due to release on October 2nd 2020, they place a gentle whim of recollection and respect towards the trip they’d took so long ago.

New adventures, paved now with opportunities, they continue to charm.

Song Of The Day! Hannah Bowers ‘Bad Behavior’ : “A sun melting full blast good vibe track with playful lyrics about sexual intrigue.”

Ross Harper ‘Watery Pillar’ : Of something very different, possibly revolutionary, definitely exploratory and at times, yes, revelatory.
