Gus Gus - Selfoss


This is group's second long-player for venerated Cologne imprint Kompakt, following the gloomy electronica of 24/7 in 2009. For the recording of Arabian Horse, the trio of President Bongo, Biggi Veira and Daniel August reportedly constructed a studio in an isolated cottage in the middle of an Icelandic lava field. With initial recordings consisting solely of two Doepfer analog modular systems and August's vocals, the album nods to '90s dance pop acts like The Beloved.

Arabian Horse welcomes the return of vocalist Urður "Earth" Hákonardóttir to the Gus Gus fold, plus new personnel in the shape of Högni Elisson of the band Hjaltalin.
