Ólafur Arnalds – Hægt, kemur ljósið

Icelandic composer and multi-instrumentalist, Ólafur Arnalds, has just released ‘Hægt, kemur ljósið’ from his upcoming album …and they have escaped the weight of darkness.

Like his homeland, Ólafur’s music resonates with beauty and mystery. ‘Hægt, kemur ljósið’ has an air of melancholy while being up-lifting at the same time; ornate instrumentation, sweeping strings and cleverly used electronics. Put simply this is one of the loveliest things you’ll hear all day.
