AGENT FRESCO Sign Worldwide Deal With Long Branch Records

Bookmark and Share

AGENT FRESCO - a band of startling originality and known for its intensely dramatic performances of music combining the pop, alternative, art and math-rock genres. For their new album the Icelandic four-piece have signed a worldwide deal with Long Branch Records/SPV (excl. Iceland). A new single, called "Dark Water", will hit the stores in May. The new studio album is scheduled for late Summer!

"I'm pleased that we were able to convince the band from our vision. With Agent Fresco we add a band with impressive skills to the Long Branch Records artists roster who will undoubtedly cause quite a stir internationally", comments SPV A&R/PM Manuel Schönfeld the signing.

"The vibe and spirit that Long Branch Records / SPV gave us made us believe that they are genuine fans of our music and aren't afraid to take risks and respects a band that wants to stay creative by exploring and pushing boundaries by giving us full artistic freedom. They are our first international signing and we trust that they have the abilities to help us reach a much broader audience. We are hoping that we all enter this deal with a fresh and productive perspective on how to make the absolute best out of our relationship with our fans and the music industry", adds Agent Fresco.

While their 2008 EP, Lightbulb Universe, won them early acclaim -- a Kraumur Music Award and Best New Artist designation at the 2009 Icelandic Music Awards -- it is their ambitious concept album "A Long Time Listening" that offers a glimpse of their true potential. A re-release of the debut album is planned via Long Branch Records as well.

At the heart of their sound is an intensity that flows through soaring rhapsodic melodies, free-floating lyrics, jazz-inflected harmonies, sideways-pulling polyrhythms and spasmodic eruptions of aggressive guitar, supported on drums by a rhythmic ribcage varying in style from spiffy to muscular. This is emotion soaked music projected with a stylistic confidence that earned this band the highest rating (KKKKK) from Kerrang! Magazine for their performances at Iceland Airwaves. Oozing musicianship from every pore, this band is impressive at any scale, electric or unplugged, on the stage or in the studio.

Two European tours, in 2011 & 2012, and festival appearances at Roskilde (DK), Eurosonic (NL) or Euroblast (DE) as well as regular sold-out performances at Reykjavík's own iconic music festival Iceland Airwaves have already brought the band's music to attention of the music fans worldwide.

"Agent Fresco, by and large one of the best bands to come out of Iceland... The mechanics and rhythmic patterns are stuttering and unpredictable - yet seamlessly stitched together into a stunning composition: a less confrontational, more internal At The Drive In." (Halley Bond, MTV)

"Seriously, this band is so impressive and the way the entire room sings along to their stunning Eyes Of A Cloud Catcher is a moment that'll live long in the memory of all here." (Paul Brannigan, KERRANG! / Iceland Airwaves)
