AGENT FRESCO – a band of startling originality and known for its intensely dramatic performances of music combining the pop, alternative, art and math-rock genres. While their 2008 EP, Lightbulb Universe, won them early acclaim — a Kraumur Music Award and Best New Artist designation at the 2009 Icelandic Music Awards — it is their ambitious concept album “A Long Time Listening” that offers a glimpse of their true potential. At the heart of their sound is an intensity that flows through soaring rhapsodic melodies, free-floating lyrics, jazz-inflected harmonies, sideways-pulling polyrhythms and spasmodic eruptions of aggressive guitar, supported on drums by a rhythmic ribcage varying in style from spiffy to muscular. This is emotion soaked music projected with a stylistic confidence that earned this band the highest rating (KKKKK) from Kerrang! Magazine for their performances at Iceland Airwaves. Oozing musicianship from every pore, this band is impressive at any scale, electric or unplugged, on the stage or in the studio. The new studioalbum is scheduled for late Summer!

“Agent Fresco, by and large one of the best bands to come out of Iceland… The mechanics and rhythmic patterns are stuttering and unpredictable — yet seamlessly stitched together into a stunning composition: a less confrontational, more internal At The Drive In.” (Halley Bond, MTV) “Seriously, this band is so impressive and the way the entire room sings along to their stunning Eyes Of A Cloud Catcher is a moment that’ll live long in the memory of all here.” (Paul Brannigan, KERRANG! / Iceland Airwaves) “AGENT FRESCO, an Icelandic band that somehow veered from blazing alt-guitar rock to Steely Dan-ballad piano figures and Queen stadium-gig hurrahs, often in the same song, to decisive euphoric effect.” (David Fricke – Rolling Stone) More information at:
