  • Description

    "Completely beautiful and utterly mesmerizing. Please try it for yourself." 9/10 (Nordic Music Review)

    Originally released in 2015, ÁRSTÍÐIR's third album 'Hvel' offers atmospheric, hauntingly beautiful songs that take elements of folk, rock, and classical music among other styles, which are arranged into new patterns that have invited comparison with RADIOHEAD, SIMON & GARFUNKEL, PENTANGLE, ÓLAFUR ARNALDS, and most of all SIGUR RÓS. The latter happens perhaps inevitably due to superficial similarities as ÁRSTÍÐIR often sing in their native Icelandic tongue and use acoustic instruments extensively.

    Side A:
    Himinhvel / Things You Said / Someone Who Cares / Moonlight / Vetur að vori / Friðþægingin

    Side B:
    Ró / Cannon / Silfurskin / Shine / You Again / Unfold
