Ólafur Arnalds

Over the past few years Ólafur Arnalds has been quietly crafting beautiful neo-classical pieces, often with just piano and a small string section although he does occasionally embrace nice things like glitchy electronics and processed beats. His first LP - 2008's 'Eulogy for Evolution' - was a gorgeous little album that positioned Arnalds somewhere fairly comfortably between his fellow countrymen Sigur Rós and Jóhann Jóhannsson. Anyway, he's got a new record coming out in may titled '...and they have escaped the weight of darkness' ...and you can have a little listen to a track off that album, released on 'Erased Tapes' by clicking here. The track is called 'Þú Ert Sólin' which apparently is pronounced something like 'thu ert solin'. Glad we cleared that one up.
