Ólöf Arnalds third full-length album ‘Sudden Elevation’ is out now on CD, 12” vinyl and download.

Sudden Elevation is her first album sung entirely in English, which captures a rare and idiosyncratic songwriting talent in full bloom.

It was produced again by long-time collaborator, Skúli Sverrisson, and was largely recorded in a late autumn 2011 stint in a seaside cabin in Hvalfjörður (literally ‘Whale-fjord’), in the west of her native Iceland.

From the breezily skipping rhythm of opener German Fields to the pealing vocals of closer, Perfect, Sudden Elevation’s particular brand of heartache is magical, dislocated and otherworldly; it’s harmonies complex and quietly electrifying.
