Olafur Arnalds

by Simon

Some of you are going to love this. This is the opening track from Arnalds’ 2010 album “And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness” and it is bloody gorgeous; coming over like the missing link between Eno’s Music For Airports and Sigur Ros’ Takk album. It’s slightly lazy comparison time, Arnalds is from Iceland and has worked with Sigur Ros. It’s dreamy, mostly piano and strings and it sounds like it has been carved from ice. Absolutely beautiful. Really really beautiful.
