Further information

At the start of the year 2013 the band Robert the Roommate was finishing their first album. They wanted to make a music video for a song on the album and asked Friðrik Árnason to help. He was more than enthusiastic and gathered some friends for he project, both Icelandic and Swedish. Friðrik who is a stylist got his friend Gigja Isis, a fashion designer and stylist from Iceland, to join forces. They got two guys from Sweden to be filmmakers, Jonas Carmhagen and Oskar Nilsson Vallinder. Together they traveled to the south of Sweden to a magical place called Ladonien which is a sculpture park in the Kullaberg nature reserve. But to make such a trip cost a fair amount of money. The people involved in the making of this video are doing it without pay but we need your help to cover the minimum costs of traveling and other expenses.   

The band Robert the Roommate is an Icelandic band which was formed in spring 2010. At first the idea was to play music by the masters like Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen. Later that year the band entered a contest held by the Icelandic National Radio 2 for the best Lennon cover, which thy won. For the last two years the band has focused more on making their own music. Their first album is released in April 2013. Robert the Roommates music is a sort of mixture of folk, pop and rock and is influenced by bands like Led Zeppelin and Fleet Foxes. Members of the band are Rósa Guðrún Sveinsdóttir: singer, Daníel Helgason: guitar, Þórdís Gerður Jónsdóttir: cello og Jón Óskar Jónsson: percussion.

---- Icelandic description ---

Í byrjun árs 2013 hófs gríðarlega skemmtilegt samvinnuverkefni milli fólks frá tveimur löndum, Íslandi og Svíþjóð.  Hugmyndin var að gera tónlistarmyndband við lagið "I will catch you when you fall" eftir hljómsveitina Robert the Roommate. Tökur hófust í apríl og er vinnsla myndbands þegar hafin. En að fara út í slíkt verkefni er kostnaðarsamt. Tökulið ferðaðist frá Stokkhólmi til suður Svíþjóðar, Ladonien sem er skúlptúragarður, og dvaldi þar í nokkra daga við tökur. Aðilar við gerð myndbandsins gefa vinnu sína en við þurfum þó að safna fyrir kostnaðarliðum og þess vegna vantar okkur þína hjálp.  

Hljómsveitin var stofnuð vorið 2010, fyrst með það í huga að spila saman tónlist eftir gömlu og góðu meistarana á borð við Bob Dylan & Leonard Cohen. Um haustið tók sveitin þátt í Lennon ábreiðulagasamkeppni Rásar 2 og bar sigur úr býtum. Nú einbeitir hljómsveitin sér að því að spila eigið efni sem má kannski helst lýsa sem þjóðlagaskotinni popp/rokktónlist. Fyrsta plata hljómsveitarinnar heitir Robert the Roommate, samnefnd sveitinni. Hún var hljóðrituð í Stúdíó Sýrlandi, Vatnagörðum, í október 2012. Um hljóðritun og hljóðblöndun sá Bjarni Þór Jensson en hljóðjöfnun var í höndum Hafþórs Karlssonar. Sérstakur gestur á plötunni er Elvar Örn Friðriksson. Öll lögin á plötunni eru frumsamin og má helst lýsa tónlistinni sem þjóðlagaskotinni popp og rokktónlist, með áhrifum frá sveitum á borð við Led Zeppelin og Fleet foxes. Hljómsveitina skipa Rósa Guðrún Sveinsdóttir: söngur, Daníel Helgason: gítar, Þórdís Gerður Jónsdóttir: selló og Jón Óskar Jónsson: slagverk.
