Ólafur Arnalds

Debut: 2006
Country: Iceland
Label: Erased Tapes
Status: Active
Official Website:

Ólafur Arnalds is only 21 (damn.. makes me feel OLD),

his music is simple but very melancholic & emotional...builds-up fluidly leading the listener into Arnalds soundscapes effortlessly...

“The classical scene is kind of closed to people who haven't been studying music all their lives. I would like to bring my classical influence to the people who don't usually listen to this kind of music…open people's mind. Especially young people, who seem to be the biggest part of my audience...” ~ Arnalds

here is Ólafur Arnalds performing live with his string quartet:
