Knife Fights was formed by one Sigurður Angantýsson, who, having finally learned to play the guitar, had been writing songs for some time. Mostly rock, punk, lo-fi arrangements and emo sensibilities. Some elements of dad-rock greats like Talk Talk and Dire Straits creep through occasionally. Some synths here and there. It’s mostly all guitar. Heaps and heaps of guitar.
Knife Fights is quintessentially a ‘band’ although the only stable members are it’s founder Siggi Hnífur and drummer pal Helgi Pétur. Working now with a revolving line-up of experts to help flesh out the various compositions that creep up, it’s hard to tell how their albums and live shows are gonna sound like, but it’s going to be ok. Everything is ok.
Knife Fights wish you the best.
