Olof Arnalds is taking over the UK and BEST albums of the DECADE!

eMusic named her Við Og Við one of the Best Albums of the DECADE! WOW. this lovely record will finally be out in the states on Jan 12th.

The UK has fallen in LOVE…

BBC “Arnalds’ timid, autumnal folk has such an exquisite pallor and fragile heart that it’ll make you reach for a protective dust sheet with which to wrap it in and tuck safely away”

UNCUT “More Vashti Bunyan than Björk, Arnalds flutes her way through Wicker Man-evoking ballads like “Klara” and mournful “Skaldborg” with a wholesome, unforced sweetness”

METRO (UK) “This music seems to have a whisper-light touch yet it leaves a brilliantly deep impression”

LINE OF BEST FIT “the whole set-up of the album is based around exploiting the beauty of Ólöf’s singing, which is pitch-perfect from start to finish”

AND she was just featured on BBC/ PRI’s the World for her performance at the Whitney earlier this month with Kjartan Sveinsson of Sigur rós.
