Feldberg is the musical incarnation of Icelandic duo, Eberg (Einar Tönsberg) and Rósa Birgitta Ísfeld.
Featuring the bluesy, soulful sound of vocalist Rosa Birgitta Isfeld, Icelandic duo create music, which is a combination of electronic, acoustic, folk and percussion elements, whilst maintaining a pop sensibility.
Feldberg was formed in January 2009. Eberg had been working on a specific sync which required a female vocalist enter Rósa Birgitta Ísfeld. Rosa was recommended by a mutual friend. From their first meet the pair hit it off immediately and just after writing their first song, they both knew they were on to something and would have to continue working together.
Deciding to call them selves Feldberg, the band decided to meet every Tuesday night for a couple of months and write songs. It wasn't long until one of their tracks of their soon to be released debut album, Don't Be Stranger got featured in an ad for the Nova Telecom Company and the public pressure was on them to release the track as a single. The record label Cod Music contacted them and offered to them to release the track which became an instant radio hit and was also used on several Icelandic compilation albums. Feldberg finished recording the album last year and released it in Iceland in October 2009 via Cod Music in Iceland and on Rallye in Japan 2010.
Feldberg got three nominations for the Icelandic Music Award, album of the year, song of the year and composer of the year. The track Dreamin´ won the “Song of the year” and the track then got picked up for the coveted Kitsune Maison compilation 2010
