There are many things that could have brought you in touch with Ólafur Arnalds, bee it his co-work with Agent Fresco singer Arnór Dan Arnarson (For Now I Am Winter) or his work with German metalcore outfit Heaven Shall Burn (he composed several of their album’s intros, including the one for “Endzeit”). Beside this, the Icelandic composer’s own discography is overwhelming. His neoclassical style of composing convinced not only on his Broadchurch soundtrack, but also on his several albums and EPs (for example 2011’s Living Room Songs or his collaborative works with Nils Frahm).
There is plenty of his interesting music out there that we can listen to at home. But now, Arnalds announced his very first tour since 2015, which means we will get the chance to enjoy his great music live! The dates just launched, and the London show is already sold out; reason enough to get your tickets quickly!
