The four singular artists behind Iceland's Bedroom Community record label take their music into the concert hall with The Whale Watching Tour.

Disparate musical backgrounds will coexist and collide as all the artists contribute to each other's music on stage. The set will flow undivided between Muhly's restless and beautiful modern compositions, Sigurdsson's precise acoustic-electronica, Frost's vast soundscapes and Amidon's haunting murder ballads.

‘Beautiful songs… wrapped cocoon like in the glistening slipstream of his aural candy floss as he darts between laptop, percussion and piano.’ FACT on Valgeir Sigurðsson

‘Nothing less than a goose-bump-manufacturing sonic piéce de résistance.’
MJ New Music Monthly on Sam Amidon
