He began his career as a drummer for metal bands. Then in 2004 he tried his hand at writing instrumentals. He branched out into the field of neo-classical strings and piano based music. His debut album, Eulogy for Evolution, released in 2007, garnered him a lot of attention. Since then, he has written eight albums and several film scores. You’ve probably heard his music in television shows and films such as The Hunger Games and Taken just to name a few. Arnalds is versatile and he crosses different genres. He has played a range of musical styles from prog-rock to electro-pop to classical minimalism. His talent is undeniable, and his fan base has grown exponentially. He is truly a musical force to be reckoned with.
“This is my breaking out-of-a-shell album. This is me taking the raw influences that I have from all these different musical genres and not filtering them. I always have my hands in many different projects at once, and I feel that this album represents that.” Olafur Arnalds
“…insanely beautiful rating 5/5 I’d give it 6/5 if it were possible!” Yorkshire Times
