Gus Gus

The cult musical chameleons from Iceland.

Not even after nearly three decades has the collective GusGus lost any of its fervour and keeps going on adventures into the lands of techno, house, electro or trip-hop. The authors of classic 90s albums such as Polydistortion and This is Normal? never strayed from their path and in the current lineup of Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson, Birgir Thórarinsson and Margrét Ran Magnúsdóttir keep exploring the chaotic fusion of human and machine. The collective has kickstarted the career of Emilíana Torrini and has collaborated for example with John Grant. They will bring PopMesse their twelfth studio album DanceOrama named after a “promised land of nostalgic future where there is infinite freedom and genres and genders don’t exist.” The album is to be released in November 2023.
