ADHD first got together in February 2008 to perform at a blues festival in Höfn – a village in the volcanic south of Iceland. The chemistry between the four players was immediate and the following year their debut album, self-titled adhd, won them stellar reviews, as well as “Jazz-album of the year” at the Icelandic Music Awards. The album contains seven songs, that are melodic and melancholic at times.
Their new album, adhd2, explores further avenues in the already exciting musical universe that is ADHD. It contains nine newly written songs by the band’s members. The album was recorded in Island Studios in Vestmannaeyjar over the period of five days in late February 2011, and was released in early August that same year. Although new, the album has already received great reviews in the Icelandic media.
