"Winkingly retro, intelligent and fun as hell."

"Super sweet candy-bracelet break-pop."

"Well crafted - catchy, melodic, energetic, fun like and bright, but still dark enough to be considered by the cool kids"

"A screaming hatful of 8-bit mayhem fused with kitschy Euro-techno."

Biography

The band Yoda Remote was formed in the fall of 2008 when Bragi and Emil met in school. That fall both Bragi and Emil had a huge interest in electronic music. They had both been involved somehow in music, playing various instruments in various bands and solo projects. They also had some experience of electronic music, but had never gone further than just writing music in their macbooks. No live performances what so ever. They taught each other what they had learned by themselves and there was no turning back, Yoda Remote was born.

When the guys decided to form an electronic band, they had no idea of where they were heading. In other words, they had no specific genre in mind, they just wanted to make electronic music. After writing a couple of songs that turned out to be really jolly and happy, with influences from 8-bit music and bands like Slagsmålsklubben, they decided that this was a great genre to proceed within. Lately they have been writing music from a wider selection of electronic genres but the jolly 8-bit influence is always present.

Early 2010 Yoda Remote released their debut EP, Skywatchers. The album is home made, and Yoda Remote did the recordings, mixings and masterings all by themselves. Since then, they have been playing concerts all over Iceland and remixing songs for various Icelandic artists.
