Ólafur Arnalds returns to London after his stunning headline concert at the Barbican in June and a summer of touring in the UK and America.
Ólafur hails from the suburban Icelandic town, Mosfellsbær, just a few kilometres outside Reykjavík. Mixing strings with loops, ambiance, electronics and beats he combines classical instrumentation with an indie-rock aesthetic. The evocative, slow-building orchestral suites take you on a journey through hauntingly melodic chamber music. Ólafur’s EP Variations on Static released earlier this year is an exploration of computer noise with strings and piano and is a beautiful companion to his album Eulogy For Evolution.
