Consisting of teenagers Halldór, Stefán and Kristján, Sykur (translation: Sugar) began in 2009, quickly establishing a reputation for packing out parties with girls and boys looking for good times. So much so that Dazed and Confused described Sykur as "plucked from the top drawer, a morsel of such rare succulence that it is sure to gain attention even beyond the cordoning velvet rope that sequesters the art world's N.I.P (Nearly Important People)".
The band already play a pivotal role in the Reykjavik scene and have collaborated with a number of the much of the hottest local talent, as well as sharing stages with international acts as Peaches, Familjen, Casiokids, Juvelen, Kleerup and Junior Boys.
Sykur mark a point where pop, art and fashion meet. Their visual aesthetic comes from their strong design sensibilities - from their homespun illustrations to collaborations with Iceland's fashion designer-to-watch, Mundi Vondi. Remarkably, the world has had to wait for Sykur's tasty slices of electro until the band finished school.
Now, it's graduation time. Packaged with remixes by fellow Icelandic pop stars FM Belfast and London DJ Kris Di Angelis.
