Broken, a 6 song album, is the outcome of two collaborating artists teaming up, producer and song writer Bistro Boy & vocalist Bjartmar Thordarson. Meeting up with a set of ideas, Bistro Boy and Bjartmar created Broken, an Electropop album about lost love, broken hearts and never losing hope. Bistro Boy (Frosti Jonsson) found his spiritual home in electronic music after dropping out of classical piano lessons, which liberated him from sticking only to black dots on paper. Bjartmar Thordarson is an actor/director, singer and composer. His most recent release is the EP album Deliria (2018), where he experiments with a dark, synth infused throwback style. Joined with Bistro Boy by a mutual love of electronica and freedom from the classical.      

‘Píanó í þokunni’ (‘Piano in the Fog’) is Bistro Boy’s third LP. The album is a dreamy tribute to Bistro Boy’s long-lasting relationship with his piano; a musical journey from past to present. “On this album I set out with a different approach from previous albums,” says the musician. “I was trying to keep the soundscape somewhat simple and throw in recordings of my old and out of tune piano.” Read the full article...

It´s official. New BistroBoy Album "Píanó í þokunni" is underway for October 1st release. It will be up for digital distribution as well as on vinyl. Stay tuned for more information and vinyl pre-orders!

Möller Records did a show at The Eg in Belfast on March 25th (2016), showcasing some Icelandic Electronica. I was there with fellow Möller Records artists EinarIndra, Futuregrapher and Gunnar Jonsson Collider. It is always fantastic to perform and play for a new audience. Here´s my live set, unfortunatly the first song is missing from the footage, but maybe thats a good things as i was singing! Hope you enjoy.

Here´s my Airwaves 2015 show at Húrra with singer Marty Byrne (Belfast) joining me on stage. The set contains bits and pieces of (mostly) unreleased stuff i´ve been fiddling with for a while. Playing live is a good time to try out something new and see what happens. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks everyone who came to see my show at Húrra during the 2015 Iceland Airwaves festival. Performing live is always a challence and i love to try out new things and see what happens. For this year´s performance i was very fortunate to work with Martin Byrne (Belfast) who joined me on stage doing vocals on three of my (unrelleased) songs. Big thank you Marty for bringing your elements to the show, it felt great! For those of you who didn´t make it to the show, i´ll keep you posted on future live dates. In the meantime, feel free to browse through my music online

Big thanks for kind words & review from Columbia College Chicago students' coverage:

"The performance featured live vocals on some of the more ambient tracks and lots of heavy kick drums and synths throughout the performance as well as a jelly fish on the screen behind. The set contained plenty of rumbling bass and hi-hats as the styles changed towards a gigantic climax and closer. The end of the set featured a monster of a house track with an epic build and climax that perhaps Eric Prydz or Four Tet would be jealous of."
