GusGus out of Reykjavik, Iceland has been making music for the past 20 years. They weren't supposed to be a band but a film and actors collective. Things changed pretty quickly in 1995 and they became an electronic music collective The collective consists of Daniel Ágúst Haraldsson, Birgir Þórarinsson, and Margrét Rán Magnúsdóttir. The collective has gone through many member changes but Daniel and Birgir have stayed constant. The remaining members have changed with the music times and have played not only electronic music but also all different forms of electronica, from trip-hop to techno, progressive house more. The duo has said that their group name came from a German movie called, "Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, where the character in the film instead of pronouncing the food being served as couscous, came out as gusgus. If you ever interview them don't EVER call them a band, they prefer to be called an art collective or circus. Producer Birgir, aka Biggi Veir's sound, is reminiscent of Depeche Mode, Marc Almond, and others. This is music to dance to and their visuals are something to check out. They have released 10 studio albums and will release their 11th album, Mobile Home this July. The album has 5 tracks of different styles of electronica, from electronic rock, darkwave, and ambient. We hope to see them touring around the world soon. Support independent music and musicians worldwide. Happy listening!
