Icelandic band Low Roar is comedian Ricky Gervais’ new favourite band

  • Low Roar The band performed live in the studio of the great Seattle radio station KEXP last November. This is a screenshot from the video, see below.

Icelandic band Low Roar received a great shout-out on Twitter from Ricky Gervais early this morning (or late night, considering the context).

The English comedian seems to have been enjoying a night of working, drinking and listening to music when he decided to give his followers on Twitter an update around 4 GMT (4AM).

“Writing, drinking wine, and listening to my new favourite band @LOWROAR

And a few minutes later: “I've given up on the writing. I'm just listening to wine and drinking @LOWROAR. No, I mean, oh fuck off. I love you.”

And of course the guys from Low Roar responded politely "Oh hi Ricky".
