Hekla is the project of Icelandic composer, vocalist and theremin virtuoso Hekla Magnúsdóttir. She has announced the release of a new album called Xiuxiuejar which will be out on September 9th via Phantom Limb. “Í Kyrrð” is the new excerpt. t was written and recorded in January… and it kind of sounds like a dark January here in Iceland,” Hekla says about the track. It is an atmospheric, slow-building track that explores insomnia and finding a place where “you are in this weird mental state of not being able to sleep and that makes you feel kind of like you are drunk and you can’t even form a sentence,” according to Hekla.
