Ólafur Arnalds – …And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness

Ólafur Arnalds – …And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness

Call it classical, call it neo-classical, call it instrumental or experimental….call it soothing and beautiful.  Not being a fan of  most instrumental music (I like the stories told in lyrics too much), something about the newest release from 23 year old Ólafur Arnalds keeps drawing me in.  What is it was Icelandic musicians and the soundscapes they create?
