New website! ‘Peers’ + B-side ‘Filter Bubble’ out now!

Hi friends!

I’m on a train heading to Odense, DK for my first support show with Broken Twin at Dexter. Yay! 

We’ve just released ‘Peers’ and a little B-side along with it called Filter Bubble. Grab it out at iTunes and Bandcamp or stream them at SoundCloud, Spotify, WiMP etc.

As you might have noticed we have a beautiful new website at www.dadrocksmusic.com - and there’s a nice little story behind this. Some time ago, with my limited skills in internet architecture, I created a website with a tool called Wix. It’s a service you pay for annually , as it’s very easy to use. A listener of Dad Rocks!, and a contributor to both Mount Remix and Year Of The Fan, noticed this and offered to build us a whole new website for free (also ‘cause mine was pretty shit). I was baffled, but it was too great an offer to reject. This is what he did, and I’m extremely happy with the result. I’ve promised to write him a song for his efforts. Thank you ever so much, Daniel J. Harvey. You are rad. Oh! And he plays in a fantastic band called Olympians. So check them out too!

Big love,
Snævar

Dad Rocks! announced to play Les Transmusicales de Rennes!

Damn.

I would never have guessed that at some point we would be invited to play one of the most important musical events in Europe. However, this is actually happening, and we’ve now been announced to play Les Transmusicales in Rennes, FR. With over 60.000 visitors last year, we’re hoping to make a couple of new fans.

Nous sommes très heureux!

I’m exceptionally happy to announce that I’ve been handpicked by the amazing danish artist Broken Twin, aka the lovely Majke Voss Romme. She recently made one of the best danish albums recently called ‘May’. Check out the beautiful ‘Sun Has Gone' below. I'll be heading out solo to support Broken Twin for five shows in Denmark, and I'll be premiering a couple of new songs too.

Dad Rocks! is also heading to Norway for the FIRST time ever to perform with a full band. This will be taking place during the Sørveiv Festival in Kristiansand on November 7th.

When Snævar Njall Albertsson aka Dad Rocks! and I did our interview last year, he already pointed out the personal nature of his forthcoming (in Germany) album "Year Of The Flesh". There is for example "Body Mass Index" about the anorexia of a close family member. He wrote the song…
