Biography

There are at least 3 bands named as Trabant: one is an Iceland rock group formed in 2001; the second one was a short-lived underground hungarian alternative group in the ’80s, still having cult-status; the other is an Italian band from Trieste.


The Icelandic one:
Trabant’s five members come from very different backgrounds in the Reykjavik music scene: One rap producer with the sailors blood pumping; a death metal guru, a crazy in the head champion DJ; a preachers son and the former boyband star. Together, all these influences explode in the mighty Trabant.

For the past nine years in various guises, Trabant have worked in each others pockets endlessly circulating the Reykjavik music scene.
Long periods of experimentation and isolation within smoke-filled rooms, with cheap vodka and computers equate to a perfectly formed eclectic battle-field sound.
Highly energetic live performances with their reputation proceeding them has lead to somewhat of an excitable following of this Icelandic 5 piece and things are just about to get going.

The small, isolated country of Iceland still remains one of the top favourites when it comes to the production of spunky and innovative rock and kandy coloured, avant-garde pop music. This baby faced volcanic Island sits below the Artic Circle and is as much of an unexplainable beauty as is the band that is native to it.

Trabant can only be explained as a rare treat of loveliness with goodness oozing from every electronic synth and sound that they produce. The boys are extremely more-ish with their quirky and inventive music and their intriguing charm verges on what can only be described as addictive.

    Eh, still searching for any information at all on the trabant that created 'promises in the shapes of noise'. If anyone has any info at all, I'd greatly appreciate a message.

    Which trabant does 'promises in the shapes of noise', 'she comes in like headlights', and 'slow and constant as she goes'. . . ? I've been looking for them for years. Someone please msg me, if they're aware of whom I'm looking for. . .

    I'm really wondering how many bands have "TRABANT" in the name. I know about Iclanders but it looks like there might be more.
