Sykur (ICL)
    Saturday February 18, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ Stratos
    Consisting of Halldór, Stefán, Kristján and new singer Agnes, Reykjavik-based Sykur (pronounced seek-er) quickly established a reputation for packing out parties with girls and boys looking for good times. So much so that Dazed and Confused described Sykur as “plucked from the top drawer, a morsel of such rare succulence that it is sure to gain attention even beyond the cordoning velvet rope that sequesters the art world’s N.I.P (Nearly Important People)”. The band released their first album, Frábært eða Frábært in October 2009 to much critical acclaim and commercial success in their native Iceland. The band already play a pivotal role in the Reykjavik scene and have collaborated with a number of the much of the hottest local talent, as well as sharing stages with international acts as Peaches, Familjen, Casiokids, Juvelen, Kleerup and Junior Boys. Mesopotamia, released through Icelandic indie Records Records on 12th October 2011, sees the band develop their much-loved electro sound. From the exquisite downtempo Battlestar, to the full-on party anthems of Messy Hair and Curling, Mesopotamia is the soundtrack of lost weekends and fun times. The first single from the album, Shed Those Tears, has already gained them international recognition, with The Guardian describing as “laser-guided synth riffs, bubbling beats and brilliantly detached vocals” and their September 2011 London show described by Artrocker as “one of the most memorable performances of the year”.
