Biography

Stafrænn Hákon has been making music and releasing records since 1999. Throughout the years the band has evolved from a one-man project to a full band, having kept the same line-up since 2012. Stafrænn Hákon has released 10 full length albums and series of EP's, the latest being the full length album 'Hausi', released on CD and Vinyl LP record in September 2017 after a successful crowdfunding effort through Karolina Fund.

Stafrænn Hákon has collaborated with a broad range of artists and musicians and was aired at thelate John Peel´s radio sessions amongst others. The band has released material on The U.S based indie label Secret Eye, Resonant Records, Awkward Silence, Chat Blanc, Japanese Nature Bliss & Happy Prince as well on Darla Records.

Stafrænn Hákon has continued sliding a comic or surreal twist in the songwriting since 1999,challenging the epic and dreamy connotations its music has always been ascribed with. Humor in combination with sincerity has long been some of Stafrænn Hákon's driving forces, a twisted combination that reflects a personal nuance for those curious to dig deeper into the musical mindscape of the man behind the band. The band's current lineup consists of guitarists Ólafur Josephsson and Lárus Siguðsson, bass guitarist Árni Þór Árnason, drummer Róbert Már Runólfsson and singer Magnús Freyr Gíslason with regular appearances from cellist Þórður Hermannsson and trombonist Þröstur Sigurðsson.

Press Highlights:

Stafrænn Hákon's tenth full-length studio album, Hausi, was released in September 2017.
The start of the album is attributable to 2016 when the band performed at “Vinnslan” in Tjarnarbíó and improvised 20 minutes of work based around the melodies played on the harp by Lárus Sigurðsson, one of the band's members. After a successful improvisation,it was decided to work further with the magical harp melodies and the songs began to pile up. The band settled at Sólheimar in Grímsnes for a weekend in August and recorded some songs that laid the foundation to this album. Recording ended in March 2017.

The band decided this time that crowdfunding the album the way forward and was done successfully through Karolina Fund in the spring of 2017.
The album has gotten great reviews so far, including the title "Dr. Rok's album of the year2017" (http://rokmusik.co/dr-roks-top-20-of-Icelandic-releases-in-2017/)and was featured as the Icelandic National Radio's (Rás 2) "Album of the week" in April 2018 (http://www.ruv.is/frett/himneskir-horputonar-med-hareysti).
