The Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and producer Ólafur Arnalds has released a new album titled Some Kind of Peace. The new album is arguably the most personal of his discography. We discover it through the emotions of each song but also through real recordings of important moments in his life.
Musically, Olafur shows once again his ability to dominate the electronic and modern classical spheres. Female vocals are almost ubiquitous on the album, whether through vocals or samples. He also collaborates with Bonobo, JFDR and Josin on certain titles.
Olafur Arnalds enjoys a notoriety equal to that of Bjork or Sigur Ros in his country. Outside its borders, it’s with the soundtrackfrom the Broadchurch series, ambitious albums including the latest “re: member” and his electro side project, KIASMOS, which the artist made himself known and became one of the most recognized representatives of this new wave of composers / producers.
Arnalds commented about the new album like that;
I’ve poured all my love, dreams and fears into this album through a magical but difficult process, but the result is something that makes me immensely proud and happy to be doing what I do.
