Plastic Lions was mass produced and distributed by Bad Taste in Iceland and then in July 2004 by Rotator in the UK. Many of Eberg’s whimsical and dreamy songs show a youthful personality. The album received rave reviews in the press in 2004. The song “Plastic Lions,” his debut single, received a warm reception from the UK.
BBC radio 1 repeatedly plays his music. Iceland Airwaves acknowledges that, “Eberg has created a wonderfully balanced album that toys with moods and styles, always sharp and concise with the mark of a great pop song, and always recognizably Eberg.” Eardrums, a website that has reviews on many musicians, states, “Beautiful, sweet and melodic electronic pop with a floating and almost acoustic feel to it.” Eberg’s second album Voff Voff has a more organized arrangement of acoustics and electronics that made most of the songs on the album hits in the UK and Iceland. Eberg explains, “Voff Voff is how Icelandic dogs bark, I’ve always tended to be a bit of a barker. I like barking in public and I do way to0 much of it when I get drunk, and that’s how Icelandic dog barks, hence the name of the album, Voff Voff.” Music Week comments on the album, “Voff Voff is a glorious treasure trove of off-kilter pop and hummable songs from the Icelandic troubadour, who has found his musical feet.” The songs on the album include the humorous ‘Love Your Bum’ and ‘Inside Your Head’, which is one of the more popular songs.
‘Inside Your Head’ was played on the hit television series, The O.C., in the sixth episode of the fourth season. The show is known for its great musical selections, helping artists gain recognition. Eberg says that the producer launched an interest in his music, which came as a surprise to him, “I’ve been getting a good reaction since and the song is number six on the iTunes chart in the U.S. electronic section.” This album with its diverse, electronic, and digital effects is categorized as an “atmospheric masterpiece” by Clash.
