is an Icelandic multi-instrumentalist who usually makes great mixture between Piano and other classic instruments with Electronic/Ambient music. So far he has released three albums in his career, while his fourth release got out to record stores on February, 2013. In For Now I Am Winter
he cooperate with Arnor Dan Arnarsson,
the leading singer of Agent Fresco.
The result is a beautiful, space-like sounds which hugs gently the listeners ears not letting him forget what he heard. I think it's one of the most atmospheric albums I've ever heard, the closest thing to Sigur Ros
projects. It's hard to imagine that Olafur Arnalds
was once the drummer of a Hardcore/Metal bands , but that's the magic that lays on his hands: On the one hand, he can hit the drums and the other hand, he can play peacefully on the piano. All you have to do now is to take a warm blanket, get it on you with a hot chocolate beverage and drown into five songs from Olafur Arnalds'
discography, three of them from the last release.
