The members of ADHD keep busy with a multitude of projects, but that’s not to say they distract easily. Since forming on a whim in 2008, this award-winning Icelandic supergroup of sorts has produced five albums of expressive avant jazz. Yet bringing brothers Óskar and Ómar Guðjónsson (saxophone and guitar, respectively), Davíð Þór Jónsson (organ and piano) and Magnús Trygvason Eliassen (percussion) together into one room to record with us has taken a few years. So what better place than the reverent space of the Hafnarfjörður Free Church in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland, where the band met us before our Iceland Airwaves broadcast began? Rejoice! The service begins now.
