Hjaltalin – Terminal (2010)

Posted: March 19, 2011 by @fregolente in Folk, Icelandic, Indie

Hjaltalín is an Icelandic pop sensation that purveys melodic sound with a conspicuous line-up. Hjaltalín is a “playful, frisky band that sounds like an endless summer night among friends.”.

Ólafur Arnalds

Posted: August 22, 2010 by @agazetademordor in Ambient, Classic, Icelandic

Inspired by Iceland. Ólafur Arnalds (pronuncia-se Óla-fur Ar-nald-s) é um islandês de 21 anos (!!) e já excursionou com o Sigur Rós além de  ter tocado bateria em bandas de metal. Arnalds mistura o clássico e o pop e foi reconhecido pela crítica imediatamente após o lançamento do seu primeiro álbum, “Eulogy For Evolution”. A música de Ólafur é inspiradora, profundamente emotiva e delicadamente simples. Uma amostra da inspiração do islandês: o interlúdio da faixa 02 do Variations of Static, Við Vorum Smá…:

“Do you still remember when we were little? When we were playing in the park and you asked me what happens when you die. I said you forget everything … everything. “Even you?” you asked. Yes, even me. You did not want to die. Never forget. The remains of what we used to have were taken away with the softest squeeze. How did I forget? How..”
