Catchy and intelligent guitar-driven pop from the countryside. Weapons are among the local critics choice for breakthrough bands for this years Airwaves. - Iceland Airwaves Booklet


Weapons – Frenetic Power-Pop bashers, respectively. Three skinny boys from Ísafjörður – summoned the largest contingent of admirers , as plenty in the crowd seemed to come just for them and left after. They quickly made with the catchy , kicking out focused , plaintive melodies that sometimes got lost in a full-throttle guitar attack.

“The best band on the bill at Organ Saturday night…… people that remained were treated to a vibrant, bracing set by the Reykjavik power-pop trio Weapons. Weapons are the perfect example of a simple thing done right: their songs don’t stretch any borders or look to pull off any tricky genre-splices. They’re just simple, guitardriven pop songs delivered with spirit and spunk, drummer Sigurmon and frontman Hreinn trading off vocal duties and teaming up for choruses that soared sky high. At their best moments, they recalled prime Sugar: indelible choruses driven by hot rodding guitars.”

Weapons are a staple of Reykjavík´s live scene and can be found playing shows at some dive or the other most weekends of the year. Their dedication to their craft has ensured that they are an extremely tightly knit trio, featuring stage moves par excellence. Their take on garage is conventional without being derivative, and melodic without being poppy. To boot, they usually get fists pumping, all of which means Weapons are a most welcome addition to any rocker´s late night pub-crawl. And Iceland Airwaves, of course.
