"Reykjavik's answer to Kate Bush."—Mojo

Having presented the Columbus debuts of well received Icelandic indie artists such as Sigur Rós and múm, we're looking forward to introducing local audiences to sublime singer and multi-instrumentalist Ólöf Arnalds, a one time member of múm. Her ethereal second album Innudir Skinni (translation: Under The Skin) for the One Little Indian label was produced by Kjartan Sveinsson of Sigur Rós (replete with a Björk cameo) and it showcases her breathtaking facility to frame sparse yet enchanting voice and guitar songs with brass and strings for full atmospheric effect. Haunting and otherworldly like musical forerunners such as Vashti Bunyan, Judee Sill and Kate Bush, the music of Ólöf Arnalds draws you into its swirling inner beauty with a seductive charm that is lilting and light to the touch. Or as Spin’s reviewer put it, "For those that consider Joanna Newsom too mainstream."
