Recorded in her native Iceland, Sudden Elevation, Ólöf Arnald’s third full album – and her first sung entirely in English - captures a rare and idiosyncratic songwriting talent in full bloom.
Produced again by long-time collaborator, Skúli Sverrisson, the new album was largely recorded in a late autumn 2011 stint in a seaside cabin in Hvalfjörður (literally ‘Whale-fjord’), in the west of Iceland.
