Here We All Are
[feat. Marty Byrne]
The Fear Of Death
[feat. Edward F. Butler]
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. He´s performed at some of Icelands best known events including Airwaves and Secret Solstice as well as abroad. BistroBoy´s music has been described as chill-out 80´s rooted with an electronic twist.
Svartir sandar (Black sands) is Bistro Boy´s second LP and his fifth Möller Records release. The album contains 10 tracks. Guest appearnce by Marty Byrne (Here We All Are) and Edward F. Butler (Memories). The album can be described as downtempo & chillout electronica with a little vocal twist.
Back story about the album name: “Svartir sandar” refers to Bistro Boy´s surroundings where he grew up in south-east Iceland. It was one of Iceland´s most isolated areas, sealed off by black sands and glacier rivers. Endless black deserts, barren empty space where living conditions are hostile with green oases in between. The album is an ode celebrating childhood memories, a little thank you note.
