______________

Hailing from Iceland FaMR comprises of four 20-year-olds from Reykjavk, Iceland - Kjartan Holm (guitar), Gufinnur Sveinsson (guitar and piano), Elvar Jn Gumundsson (bass) and Andri Freyr orgeirsson (percussion). Their music is best described as energetic, melodious post-rock, though being the natural creative visionaries they are, the band expand and even subvert their style with almost every song.

Following a scintillating live performance at 2007s Iceland Airwaves, FaMR were invited to undertake a two-week 2008 tour in the USA and Canada. Later in the same year the band were invited to do 15 dates with Sigur Rs on a European tour and used the opportunity to release their album on iTunes, as well as selling it on the tour. The band sold out on the 2000 albums they manufactured bringing the total sales figures of this modest demo recorded in a home studio to 5000 copies.

Needless to say the tour with Sigur Rs attracted attention, which landed them a showcase slot at Eurosonic at the start of 2009 and a months headline tour in Europe early summer last year Spending the rest of the summer writing a new album FaMR chose the Sigur Ros studio in Iceland to record 10 new songs with LA producer Scott Hackwith. The album is due to be released in the spring.

Local support from the amazing Katerwaul.

Aw man that was truly one of the greatest gigs I've seen in Aberdeen! Up there with Explosions at Drummonds. The turn out was fantastic for this too and full of "listeners". Kudos to Ross and Stephen for a fantastic show and great hospitality.

Still trying to get over that embrace with Yogi. Mmmmm

Thanks to everyone. Had a great night. Nice to see a healthy turnout. The band were genuinely happy and said it was the best Uk date and crowd they had had so far. Katerwaul were brilliant too! Makes it all worthwhile when you get nights like this! :)
