Born in Iceland you have two chances: Staying there and waiting that something happens to you or starting out. Ólafur Arnalds chose latter. Now 26 years old, he came from playing some punk music with friends to the epic songs he now composes. his grandmother gave him a record of classic music when he was a child. Maybe that explains his musical style.
Classic indie electronic, maybe? Very moody, very atmospheric and cinematic. Judge for yourself. There are nine albums, made in six years, to chose from… Plus some soundtracks for various movies – like for Sam Levinson’s “Another Happy Day” (2012).
