Skurken is the artist name of Jóhann Ómarsson, an electronic musician based in Reykjavík. Someone described Skurken’s music as ‘cheesy, fucked up pop music with dramatic 80’s-influenced string parts’. He could be right, although Skurken tries not to analyze his creations too much. Skurken‘s influences include everything from corny 80’s ballads to late 90’s drill&bass and old computer game themes. And probably elves and nature too.
