MoR (Margret Eir / vocals and Robert Thorhallsson / bass) has been creating quite a wave in Iceland. The duo has been touring the country, selling out concert halls, receiving rave reviews. Duran, a cool collection of (you guessed it) Duran tunes has taken Margret (already one of Iceland’s most popular vocalists) and Robert (who has recorded over 20 albums) to a new level as well as introducing them to the U.S. and Canadian radio markets in the fall of 2006 by quickly charting on NPR stations like WVIA in Pennsylvania, , and CFBU in Ontario, frequently played on New York area stations like WFMU, WVOF and WESU , added to numerous playlists such as KTUH in Hawaii and KCBX in California and making WVIA radio host and producer George Graham’s best of 2006 CD list. Translating. Interpreting. Incarnating. Transforming a cultural collage— without sentiment or inhibition— into translucent clarity. Duran is an homage that remains personal.

The unusual combination of Margrét Eir’s powerful voice and a the skillful playing of bass player, Róbert Thórhallsson, transforms the music of artists such as Duran Duran, Coldplay, Radiohead and Joni Mitchell.
