Bug by Paddan

Darkenin Heart

Paddan, the experimental duo from Iceland, is set to unveil their latest EP, Fluid Time, in Spring 2024 under the banner of Lovitt Records. The release marks a significant milestone in the path of Sigtryggur Baldursson and Birgir Mogensen, two lifelong friends whose artistic evolution traces back to their formative years as football players in the town of Kópavogur.

With their members being part of Iceland's experimental punk scene, Paddan's trajectory has been nothing short of extraordinary. Their involvement with the influential collective KUKL during the eighties cemented their reputation as avant-garde trailblazers.

With Fluid Time, Paddan draw inspiration from their profound understanding of time and space. The EP promises to challenge and excite with its audacious blend of genres and influences.

Bug is the first taste from the upcoming EP. The band's Sigtryggur Baldursson describes: "On 'Bug' we are working with the concept of using ideas very directly, documenting musical performances and using them more or less naturally, as they come. You could say we are putting our faith in the saying that first impressions are often correct. There is one modular synth in the background but everything else is played live on various instruments. Apart from bass, drums, and guitars we also have a harmonica and lap steel popping up in various places, played by Gaukur Davidsson."

Blending live instrumentation with electronic elements, Fluid Time was recorded, produced, and arranged by Sigtryggur and Birgir who also play basses and drums along with various other instruments.
