Gus Gus Performs “Over”

Watch the eclectic-electronica assembly perform live on KEXP.

November 10, 2016

KEXP presents Gus Gus performing “Over” live at the KEX Hostel in Reykjavik during Iceland Airwaves '11. Recorded Oct. 12, 2011. 

Few bands are more iconic in Iceland than GusGus. Starting two decades ago — more arts collective than musical act — GusGus broke from their cinematographic origins and through to mainland Europe and the world in the mid ‘90s with their eclectic-electronica assembly of techno, deep house, dance-pop, trip-hop, R&B and other influences — on which, like all Icelanders, they put their own spin. Now pared down to a group of three from the original nine, GusGus is led by producer Birgir Þórarinsson (a.k.a. Biggi Veira), who sculpts sound structures to elevate the dynamic vocal talents of longtime member Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson and newer golden child Högni Egilsson (also of Hjaltalín). Together, at KEX Hostel in Reykjavik during KEXP’s Iceland Airwaves broadcast, they turned the packed house into a gyrating dance floor as they featured tracks from their 2014 release, Mexico.
