Further Information

A little bit about Supersport!

Supersport! was born in a sort of in-between state in the members’ lives around autumn 2019, but soon turned into an elegant but lively alt-pop project. The group’s first EP, Dog Run EP, which came out via Reykjavík-based arts collective Post-dreifing last July, was met with enthusiasm by music fans and critics alike, and was recently nominated for the annual Kraumur Music Awards. Supersport! consists of Bjarni Daníel Þorvaldsson, Þóra Birgit Bernódusdóttir, Hugi Kjartansson and Dagur Reykdal Halldórsson.

The upcoming record & collaborators

Right from the start, us in Supersport! have placed a big emphasis on maintaining the DIT-ethos (Do-It-Together) that Post-dreifing has heralded, and we celebrate extensive collaborations with other artists. This will become even clearar once we release our next record this year; it’s produced in collaboration with producer Árni Árnason, known for his work as bass player with UK-based indie-band The Vaccines - and the idea was that each song features a new collaborator. It seems this will almost be the case.

Some of the collaborating artists on this record include: Salóme Katrín, Jíhannes Bjarki Bjarkason (from Skoffín), Katrín Helga Ólafsdóttir (K.óla), Diego Manatrizio (Flaaryr - pictured below, playing guitar with Bjarni) and Tumi Árnason. Each song is written collectively by the members of the band, and they all deliver vocals on the record.

Post-dreifing & the DIT-mentality

Us in Supersport! are active participants in local underground arts collective Post-dreifing, that has been “succesfully expanding the form”, as music critic Arnar Eggert Thoroddsen said in the Morgunblaðið news paper last year. Supersport!’s influence in this grassroots movement can perhaps be traced back to our direct involvement in its works. The band has also adopted Post-dreifing’s anti-capitalist values, and focuses greatly on the DIT-ethos, that has been so crucial to the scene.

It’s exactly because of this that we now seek the support of our community, in hope that it will help us fund our record. We greatly value the freedom that comes with working independently, but unfortunately, some things keep costing money. Therefore, each dime that comes into this funding campaign will prove to be invaluable to our process, and we promise to do our best to give back to that community, which supports us and keeps us afloat, by throwing a plethora of shows and events when the situation in society allows us to.
