add this song (to your heart)

GusGus is back: Add this song
Since its foundation in the year 1995, Reykjavik's Gus Gus are working hard to make this world a less boring place. Initially tagged by the press as the next big Icelandic music export after Björk, the band swept away all cliché thinking with their highly infectuous metrosexual multimedia pop and secured themselves a deal with the prestiguous 4AD label. 
Since then a lot of hot water has been ejected by Icelands geysers but Gus Gus miraculously always managed to combine avantgarde with pop, soul and of most prominently - with electronic music. Especially with their furious live shows they've earned themselves a devoted following worldwide. 

This year's September will bring us the release of their sixth studio album that goes by the name "24/7". At this point, we don't want to let too much of the cat out of the bag but it's certainly right to say that they've once more reinvented themselves and the result is truely breathtaking. As we're convinced that the world-embracing harmonies and impeccable catchiness of "Add this song" should be heard during this summer season, so we've decided to already share this with you now.

The remixes all sound as excellent as their producers:

[this has been the soundtrack to my life for weeks nopw] I LOVE IT!! xo xo :el fano:
