#10 Particles - Ólafur Arnalds with Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir (circa 2016)

Recorded in an old lighthouse, all the reverb you hear is natural and not added post production. Apparently the lyrics and vocal melody were improvised over the minimalist structure until the final recording. Ólafur’s music is also the foundation of our 2019 production, “Menagerie”. Fellow Icelander Nanna is the vocalist for “Of Monsters and Men” (Little Talks). This song hits squarely in the feels.

Enjoy!
