The Esoteric Gender might be born in Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital, but the band draws its roots from all over the world. Four members, four different countries: England, France, Denmark, Canada. This explains the vast scope of genres their music touches, from dance to triphop, from rock to electronica.
They have won the support of legendary producer/engineer Tony Platt (Bob Marley, AC/DC, Sparks), describing them as “a favorite of [his] for quite a long time now”, and adding “they deserve their music to be heard far and wide”, and of British magazine Dazed & Confused, who picked them as one of their favorite acts of the 2010 Iceland Airwaves music festival, as well as other newspapers and music industry figures from Iceland.
Having recorded their songs in two of Iceland's best studios, Sundlaugin (Sigur Ros) and Greenhouse Studios (Valgeir Sigurdsson), they are planning on releasing their long-awaited debut album in 2011.
