Retro Stefson

Spontaneity is mostly an overused buzz word concerning acoustic sessions. Yet not with Retro Stefson! Imagine singer and guitarist Unnstein Manuel Stef├ínsson and singer and percussionist Haraldur Ari Stef├ínsson walking out the backstage area right after their show and bumbing into us. “You want us to do an acoustic session? Now? Sure, we can do this!”, Unnstein says, grabs the guitar and hops into a boat that has run ashore in the dusty trailer park. From the distance the worried boat owner shouts: “What are you doing there?” “We are leaving”, Unnstein explains and Haraldur dispels her last concerns: “We are not goint to hurt it, we are going to make love to it.” Now that’s a statement! And really Retro Stefson’s stripped down performance of “Qween” turns out heart-melting. Meanwhile their bandmates have gathered in the back sitting in the evening sun while the two crave for Victoria. Whatever the circumstances (as it happens we’ve already stumbled into them at last year’s Haldern Pop Festival), these kids are great fun!
