Bio

bagdad brothers is the project of former vára-members bjarni daníel and sigurpáll viggó. despite having only been active in the current form for just over a year, the brothers

have already released three short records, three music videos, and played around 40 shows in the reykjavík area, including a few festival slots and a session with seattle‘s kexp.

their music has been described as energetic, youthful indie-pop for the summer time, tackling themes ranging from deeply personal heartbreak experiences, to an ironic political commentary.

even though bagdad brothers‘ releases to date have certainly gained them a fair amount of media attention, it has mostly been their live shows that have resulted in their reputation as a magnetic, electric and hilarious act. surely one too keep an eye on.

JÆJA. (2018)

“JÆJA” followed up “jazz kid’s summer party” in an unexpectedly, yet moderately succesful manner. the project was executed under an unusual amount of time pressure (the whole EP having been written, recorded and released in less then two months), and is the product of excessive spontanious decision making. it has since it came out, on May 24th, 2018, won the Kraumur music award for record of the year, as well as having been featured on numerous end-of-the-year lists of critics and music enthusiasts all over Iceland.

sorry (2019)

the band´s latest record, “sorry” is rather shorter than their previous releases, but it makes up for a it´s short running time with a more mature songwriting approach, while still maintaining the band´s well known dreamy soundscapes and jangly guitars.
