The Reykjavík based band Þoka was formed early in the mighty year 2012 by guitarist Reynir Hauksson and keyboard virtuoso Heimir Klemenzson. They both had attended the icelandic rock scene for few years, but wished to expand their musical horizon by forming a “different” band, which only consisted of a guitar, keyboard and vocals.Then they asked the grand jazz and blues singer Agnes Björgvinsdóttir to join them, which she did.
The band entered the Icelandic band contest “Músiktilraunir” sort of Global Batlle of the Bands in Iceland in March 2012 and ended up in 2. place.
In the summer of 2012 their debut album will appear.
