冰岛后摇名团For A Minor Reflection中国巡演北京站
FOR A MINOR REFLECTION China Tour - Beijing
For A Minor Reflection（以下简称FAMR）于2007年冰岛雷克雅维克成军，成员包括：吉他手Kjartan Hólm、吉他手/钢琴手Guefinnur Sveinsson、贝司手Elvar Jón Guemundsson和鼓手Andri Freyr Torgeirsson。乐队刚刚成立时，成员平均年龄不到20岁。
2007年，FAMR独立录制了处女专辑《Reistu tig vie, sólin er komin á loft》（意为“Rise and shine, the sun is up”），专辑中的6首曲目长达1个小时。FAMR不仅外型出色，他们那极富能量的现场，让他们经常被与Explosions in the sky、Caspain和Godspeed You! Black Emperor作比较。英国《每日邮报》曾在一次演出报道中用“把屋顶掀翻”来形容他们的现场。Sigur Rós甚至称他们为“最有潜力超过Mogwai”的乐团，并于2008年邀请他们一起进行了15场的欧洲巡演。
2009年夏天，FAMR选择了Sigur Rós御用录音棚，并邀请了洛杉矶的知名制作人Scott Hackwith（Ramones、Spiritualized等知名乐队御用制作人）担纲制作。2010年6月，FAMR发行了他们的第二张专辑《H?ldum í átt ae óreieu》（意为“向着混乱前进”）。2011年春天，他们应邀参加在美国奥斯汀举办的独立音乐盛会SXSW。同年夏天，FAMR应邀参加了在上海举办的黑兔音乐节。2011年10月，FAMR发表了同名EP《For a Minor Reflection》。
2013年，FAMR发表了现场专辑《Live at Iceland Airwaves》，收录了他们在冰岛最大的音乐节Iceland Airwaves的5首现场录音作品。
Energetic, melodious rock band, For a Minor Reflection comprises of four 23-year-olds from Reykjavík, Iceland. Kjartan Holm (guitar), Guefinnur Sveinsson (guitar & piano), Elvar Jón Guemundsson (bass) and Andri Freyr Torgeirsson (drums). Far from simple to define, their music expands and subverts itself with every song.
Starting life as a hard rock duo in a tiny garage in Reykjavík, For a Minor Reflection (FaMR) morphed into an indie rock trio, for a week or so, then a blues quartet, for a little longer, before finally arriving at their current incarnation: instrumental post-rockers du jour.
Back in 2007, their debut album ‘Reistu tig vie, sólin er komin á loft…’ (Rise, the sun’s up…) got them a small but passionate fan base. A mesmerizing, hour-long tapestry, the album features six songs and was recorded over a weekend at a friend’s studio. This record, as well as their energetic live shows, has earned them a slew of accolades, including favourable comparisons to Explosions in the Sky, Caspain and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Their fellow Icelanders Sigur Rós even described them as the “band with the potential to out do Mogwai”.
Following a scintillating live performance at 2007’s Iceland Airwaves, FaMR were invited to undertake a two-week 2008 tour in the USA and Canada.
Later in the same year the band were invited to do 15 dates with Sigur Rós on a European tour and used the opportunity to release their album on iTunes. The band sold out on the 2000 albums they manufactured to sell on tour. The total sales figures amounted to 5000 copies. Not bad for a modest demo recorded in a home studio.
Needless to say the tour with Sigur Rós attracted the attention of promoters. They landed a showcase slot at Eurosonic at the start of 2009 and a months headline tour in Europe. Spending the rest of the summer writing a new album, FaMR chose the Sigur Rós studio in Iceland to record 10 new songs with LA producer Scott Hackwith. The album, H?ldum í átt ae óreieu” (Heading in the direction of Chaos) was released in 2010 and the band toured in Europe, enjoying a steadily increasing fan base.
In 2011 things have really started heating up with an American Tour concluding with a slot at the legendary SXSW Festival. In the summer of 2011, they warmed up for Hardcore Punk/Metal band Converge proving the diverse following that their music invites. On the road again, in the summer of 2011 FaMR performed at the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary. Despite the sweltering heat, they managed to attract attention and followed the festival with gigs in Estonia, Latvia, China and Culture Collide in USA
More exciting news is that the band have just released a new EP in Iceland that is sure to be worth a major reflection.
