Humbled as always to have bands and producers from countries all over the globe and couldn't be more than happy to have two of Reykjavik, Iceland's finest hitmakers this Spring! BERNDSEN and HERMIGERVILL, while household names over there, they've began world pop dominance together on this co-headlining tour! They'll be joined by BALTIMORE pop/post-punk/indie rulers RAINDEER as well as a local TBA!
BERNDSEN: A man whose love of the 80’s is at his very core, David BERNDSEN is a bearded iconic pop figure in Iceland, famous for his sound and various videos that recreate an era and a distinct moment in time when music (and the costumes and aesthetics) from groups such as Soft Cell, OMD, Yazoo, Visage, the Human League and Ultravox triumphed worldwide!
HERMIGERVILL: There's a rumour that within every household in Iceland there lives at least three musicians. Not because all musicians live together, but because so many Icelanders make music and release it under different names. The cold, dark winter days must helps them stay indoors to practise, as does a good sense of humour and a healthy music culture. It's this magical musical country that eccentric artists, HERMIGERVILL calls home. The producer from Reykjavik not only produced records for Berndsen and Retro Stefson, but he also released four records with self-written material, two of which were electronic adaptations of traditional Iceland pop songs.
