Ólöf is familiar to all music-loving Icelanders. At least she sounds familiar, having contributed to songs by favourite Mugison (among others), and serving as Múm‘s collaborator for the last three years. She is a multi-talented experimental musician who plays guitar, viola, xylophone, and sings (of course).
But fresh on the heels of her debut solo album Við og við (produced by none other than Sigur Ros’ Kjartan Sveinsson), Ólöf’s delicate voice seems to have been unleashed. One pregnant woman, a guitar, and a chair have never come together so beautifully as they did last night at Iðnó. A treat for all in attendance.
