Only 21 years of age, Ólafur hails from the suburban Icelandic town,Mosfellsbær, just a few kilometres outside Reykjavík. He as immersed himselfcompletely in the world of delicate symphonic compositions in a near weightlessorchestral undertaking. Mixing strings and piano with loops, ambiance,electronics and beats, his music fits into the Erased Tapes catalogue like a pieceof a jigsaw puzzle. Debut album 'Eulogy for Evolution' took the listener on ajourney, representing different periods in life, from birth to death. The firstpressing of the follow-up EP ‘Variations of Static’ sold out on his winter touralready and will now be available in stores. While keeping the classicalfoundations of his debut album, here Arnalds incorporates crackling electronicsand the dead voice of a machine; like vague memories of tradition lost within thedigital age we all live in. It comes with a voucher for a free digital copy of the'Erased Tapes Collection I' compilation to celebrate the label’s 1st anniversary. The 10" is a super limited clear vinyl issue
