ÓLAFUR ARNALDS : ..And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Their Darkness LP (ERASED TAPES)
Born in the suburban Icelandic town of Mosfellsbær, a few kilometers outside of Reykjavík, the 25-year old composer has always enjoyed pushing boundaries with both his studio work and his live-shows. Through relentless touring and determination this young artist has steadily gained recognition worldwide since his 2007 debut ‘Eulogy for Evolution’. Ólafur Arnalds’ second full-length album ‘…and they have escaped the weight of darkness’ (2010), continues his mission to lure an indie-generation of pop and rock fans into an emotive world of beguiling electronic chamber music and delicate classical arrangements.
