Biography

Bardi Johannsson (born October 10, 1975) is an Icelandic composer. He started playing music at a young age (the piano and guitar specifically) and as a child had a track on a V.A. album. Bardi’s most popular project Bang Gang started as a duo with him and his friend Henrik Baldvin Bjornsson (now in Singapore Sling). They did a self released 7” vinyl called Listen Baby. After hat release and a couple of concerts they decided to take a long break. In the mean time, Bardi took interest in electronic music and together with singer Esther Talia Casey (a friend from his teens) resumed work again under the name Bang Gang (because they couldn’t come up with another band name). Bardi is currently signed with EMI and came in second at the national selection for Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, with the Song Ho, Ho, Ho, We Say Hey, Hey, Hey performed by Merzedes Club. Bardi Johannsson has so far released 3 studio albums - You (1998 Bang Gang), Something Wrong (2003 Bang Gang), Lady & Bird (2003 Lady & Bird with Keren Ann), Strakarnir Okkar (2005 Minusbardi) and a few singles. Haxan - a soundtrack opus to the movie Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922) by Benjamin Christensen - is the first album Bardi released under his own name in 2006. All the songs on this record are written and produced by Bardi and performed by him and the Bulgarian Chamber Orchestra.
