Ólöf Arnalds: Free Download of ‘The Matador EP’

15 Oct 2013

Ólöf Arnalds has released a 4-track EP of songs in her native Icelandic to download for free! ‘The Matador EP’ is comprised of previously un-released tracks and is available as a free download from Bandcamp below:

The 4 Icelandic songs within The Matador EP were originally included as a cover-mount with Spanish art magazine Matador last year. Three songs (Lát vaxa, Blóm, and Hlið) were composed by Skúli Sverrisson with lyrics by Ólöf, while Af stað was written for Björk’s Náttúra concert in Reykjavík in June 2008. The lyric of the latter song is based on an old Icelandic nationalist poem. “I twisted all the words around” explains Ólöf, “Making fun of the over-romanticised pride of our country and put the emphasis on how much nature gives us as people; the rest, the piece of mind, the inspiration, the big picture… I sung about how the Icelandic nation was literally getting drunk from individual gain and self-importance. Three months later the country´s economy collapsed…”
