Label: Erased Tapes
Official Website: http://www.myspace.com/olafurarnalds
Ólafur Arnalds is only 21 (damn.. makes me feel OLD),

“The classical scene is kind of closed to people who haven't been studying music all their lives.

Especially young people, who seem to be the biggest part of my audience...” ~ Arnalds
