Icelandic trio Legend is an electronic-pop act with something to prove. The band's intense live shows have been so well-received that they've been invited to play prestigious festivals all around the world, including Terminus in Calgary, Canada, Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany, the UK's Infest Festival, and many others. Audiences have compared the performance to "the second coming of Skinny Puppy," and Irish-Canadian electronic juggernaut VNV Nation invited them as opening act on a recent tour in Germany.
Frontman Krummi Björgvinsson is no stranger to intense projects: he is also singer of the Icelandic metal act Minus, co-founder (along with Daníel Ágúst of Gus Gus) of the alt-country act Esja, and founder of punk band Döpur.
Legend's sole album, Fearless, is an intense clinic on how to write perfect pop-songs, embalmed with longing, sexuality, and spirit. The album, released in 2013 on Toronto's Artoffact Records, found its way to editorial coverage in iTunes, The Toronto Star, Sonic Seducer, and Terrorizer.
In 2014, Legend released a split 7" vinyl with country-mates Sólstafir. The record sold out on pre-orders and spawned one reprint, as well as a cassette version. Both bands cover each others' songs on the release, and its success garnered Legend producer and keyboardist Halldór Björnsson an invite to do keyboards on Sólstafir's latest single for Season of Mist.
Legend is currently writing their second album, due out in 2016.
