Light and fresh for Kristall carbonated water

on .

Egils Kristall is the market leading brand for lightly carbonated water in Iceland, manufactured and distributed by Ölgerðin.

Director Guðjón Jónsson at Filmus Productions got the task of directing a TV commercial for Kristall, commisioned by Ölgerðin's acency Fíton.

For this occasion, Don Pedro and Eberg joined forces and wrote and produced a song together, entitled 'You Can do Anything'.

They used bunch of stringed instruments ranging from Guitalele, autoharp and banjo to the more traditional acoustic guitar, and Eberg lent his voice to the song. The aim was to create a sense of lightness to fit the mood of the brilliantly made commercial and the product itself.

Vodafone team up with Medialux - Big Time

on .

Vodafone just launched a new summer campaign for prepaid services, aimed at younger users, and masterminded by their agency Fíton.

This visually stunning commercial, directed by Reynir Lyngdal for Pegasus Productions, needed a fun and catchy dance track that would make even the most reluctant hips swing to the beat. 

Enter Sigga Þóra, who lent her vocals to BIG, a song written and produced by our own Don Pedro. Here is the result:

As soon as the campaign aired it was clear that there was a great demand for a full version of the song. So they went back to the studio and finished what they started, with help in the form of additional analogue synth tinkering by Bjarki.

Suzy Thunder was born, and BIG was made available to the dancing public :-)

Here you can listen to the full version of the song. Go ahead and dance, you know you want to:

 

The Feldberg Connection

on .

Remember this song for Kringlan Shopping Mall?

Well, as some of you might know, it turned out to be a very popular single, which has now been released in 2 languages.

It didn't take long for Eberg and vocalist Rosa to join forces again, this time for a Nova Telecom spot, directed By Arni Jonsson for Republik and agency Dagur&Steini.

The inevitable happened. Feldberg was born.

The pressure to release the song as a single soon became enormous, and when this is written 'Don't be a stranger' has stayed for 4 weeks on the top 10 list, with now real signs of being on it's way out anytime soon.

Check out the commercial, and you will understand why. Very catchy indeed. This is one of the many happy collaborations where a commercial gives a song it's wings so that it can take off itself.

You can buy the full song .:here:. And yes, Feldberg are now working on a studio album, of which you will of course receive more news here.

Jobim classic for Landsbankinn

on .

When ENNEMM got the challenge to come up with a new campaign for Landsbankinn, they decided to focus on the bank's staff at your service. Directing duo Samuel & Gunnar shot a TV spot around the country in various branches of the bank. Which is where we come in.

When it came to music, the creative team opted for a low key and intimate local version of Águas de Março (Waters of March) by the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim. Don Pedro produced and performed the track to specifications and got vocalist Mr. Silla to lend her lovely voice to it.

The result can be seen here, and under the movie file you can enjoy the track itself in higher resolution and without sound effects.
