From Iceland — Legend



Published September 13, 2013

Legend is an Icelandic duo that experiments with electronic music. The band’s frontman, Krummi Björgvinsson, is no stranger to the music world, having catapulted punk-rock act Minus to deals with Victory Records, Smekkleysa and One Little Indian. Legend’s debut album ‘Fearless’ was self-released in Iceland to astonishing reviews, including comparisons to what reads as a who’s who of modern music. An essential record that will keep giving back.
Krummi, singer of the Icelandic punk rock act Minus and co-founder (along with Daníel Ágúst of Gus Gus fame) of the alt-country act Esja, formed Legend in 2011 with Halldor Björnsson. The duo have since graced the stage of Iceland Airwaves, been remixed by Icelandic-Los Angeles electronic fashion crew Steed Lord, and been featured in filmmaker Kitty Von-Sometime’s superb ‘Weird Girls Project’ video series (along with Gus Gus, Ólafur Arnalds, Emiliana Torrini, Ghostigital, Imogen Heap and others). In 2012, Legend signed a worldwide (ex-Iceland) deal with Artoffact Records.
