“When I listen to it, I see an odd collection of nomads sitting in a beat-up 20-year-old brown Volvo driving through the country. A blonde head sticks out the back window and the wind makes her hair dance” – ICELAND REVIEW

Stafrænn Hákon has continued sliding a comic or surreal twist in his songwriting since 1999, challenging the epic and dreamy connotations his music has always been ascribed with. Humour in combination with sincerity haslong 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.
