Mighty Bear [IS]
“Mighty Bear makes for a mysterious new face on Iceland’s electronic scene. Pollinating the worlds of drag culture and abstract electronic pop. Mighty Bear’s show is audio-visual in nature: any danger of laptop-staring, knob-twiddling boredom is immediately dispelled by the
accompanying glittering gowns and towering heels, rippling film imagery, masks, wigs, and a bold, charismatic approach to the stage. Strutting onstage in a ghostly, glamorous mask to a soundtrack of intense but ethereal beats, Mighty Bear is the undisputed dark queen of the
Reykjavík electronica scene.
Mighty Bear has mastered the creation of eerie atmospheres throughout his career. It’s no surprise that his solo debut at Iceland Airwaves 2017 created a buzz all over town about this artist in a black cape and hidden behind a mysterious mask. Not more than a year after the festival, Mighty Bear released his gloomy EP debut Einn (translated as One or Alone) that
lasts roughly 10 minutes. Known for his haunting abstract synth soundscapes and soft, melancholic vocals.. That’s an artist who is as mysterious as he is glamorous while performing on stage. Mighty Bear has played at festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, Secret Solstice and Sónar Reykjavík along with shows in Italy and upcoming shows in 2020 in the
Czech republic and Italy. If you love Icelandic sombreness and melancholy, I urge you to check out Mighty Bear’s music.”
