Lockerbie is a 5-piece band originally formed in Reykjavík early 2008 by four 16 and 17 year old friends that shared the interest in making and performing music. Rúnar, Davíð and Gummi (Guðmundur) met each other in elementary school in Hafnarfjörður where they started playing. They linked up with Doddi (Þórður) a year after meeting him in the Icelandic battle of the bands competition called Músíktilraunir in early 2007.
Their first song release, Snjóljón, came in the fall of 2009 following winning a competition held by the National Radio of Iceland (RÚV) where bands could send in their demo and hopefully get picked to record the song in a major studio. Snjóljón sparkled interest from various places; bloggers, promoters and even corporates as the song was used in a collaboration video between Nike and Össur.
