Unfortunately, as we all know, Eurovision 2020 couldn’t take place. However, it didn’t stop the real Icelandic entry Daði Freyr and his song ‘Think About Things’ from gaining an army of fans online and going viral on a stratospheric scale. With its quirky synths and stacked sing-along harmonies, the song has already become an anthem for those in isolation across the globe, bringing some much needed comic relief at a time when the world is in turmoil.

Despite his recent success Daði has been making music for well over a decade. He won the Icelandic battle of the bands (músíktilraunir) in 2012 with his band RetRoBot along with being awarded as the synth player of the year. Daði moved to Berlin in 2014 to study audio production and whilst there he released an album under the name ‘Mixophrygian’ which was well received amongst electronic enthusiasts. In 2017 he participated in the Icelandic Eurovision preliminaries with the fictional band Gagnamagnið (e. Data plan) and their song ‘Is this love?’. Even though they ended up second in the contest Daði became a household name in Iceland as a result playing countless gigs the months after.

Daði released the EP ‘Næsta skref’ (e. The next step) in 2017 and an 8 track album ‘& co.’ in 2019, featuring some brilliant musicians. It’s hard to pinpoint Daði’s style of music but a mixture of Pop/Electro/Disco/Funk comes pretty close. “I like catchiness, it’s all about having fun!” Daði explains.
