Consisting of Icelanders Agnes, Halldór, Stefán and Kristján, Sykur (translation: Sugar) began in 2009 and quickly established a reputation for packing out parties with girls and boys looking for good times. So much so that Dazed and Confused described Sykur as "plucked from the top drawer, a morsel of such rare succulence that it is sure to gain attention even beyond the cordoning velvet rope that sequesters the art world's N.I.P (Nearly Important People)". The band released their first album, Frábært eða Frábært in October 2009 to much critical acclaim and commercial success. The single Viltu Dick? From this album becoming one of the biggest radio hits in Iceland in 2009.
