about

The highly anticipated second album '...and they have escaped the weight of darkness' will herald another intense year for Ólafur Arnalds, with the album being accompanied by a world tour starting in China. It will bring him to the UK for his first performance with the RNCM Symphony Orchestra, conducted by André de Ridder (Nico Muhly/Damon Albarn) on July 1 at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. The 23-year old Icelandic composer continues his mission to lure an indie-generation of pop and rock fans into an emotive world of beguiling electronic chamber music and delicate classical arrangements.
