Snorri Hallgrímsson is an Icelandic composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, known also as collaborator of Ólafur Arnalds. We introduced him with the debut album Orbit. Now he has announced the release of a new EP called Landbrot I which will be out on November 13th via Moderna Records.
According to the press release, This introspective and personal collection of instrumental pieces takes its name from the location of his family cabin in rural Iceland, which he describes as his ‘happy place’. Landbrot translates to erosion or ‘land fractures’, and from this we can imagine the search for inner calm & acceptance amongst the many obstacles of daily life.
“Haustar” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
