Originally centered around the songwriting partnership of guitarist Bjarni Daníel and bass player Þóra Birgit (both formerly of Reykjavík DIY dream punk icons bagdad brothers), supersport! has evolved into a dynamic 4-piece project. Adding Dagur Reykdal (of Tucker Carlson’s Jonestown Massacre, Ingilín ) on drums and Hugi Kjartansson on lead guitar and keys, the band has already made an impact on the Reykjavík grassroots music scene, with all four members being active organizers within local arts collective Post-dreifing.
The band places a big emphasis on the DIT (Do-It-Together) ethos, and celebrates extensive collaborations with other artists, musical or not.
The Reykjvík Grapevine recently dubbed Supersport! “Reykjavík’s most charming indie pop group”, claiming the group’s debut EP, Dog Run, to be “jam-packed with lo-fi fun and wholesome ethics.”
Having seemingly charmed local music critics and fans alike with the record, released by post-dreifing in July 2020, the band already have their eyes set on a follow-up project, a lengthier piece, worked in collaboration with producer Árni Hjörvar of UK indie superstars The Vaccines. More music can be expected in 2021.
