ÁRSTÍÐIR / Svefns Og Vöku Skil (2011)

Árstíðir's second album is Icelandic neo-folk that explores the magical state between waking and sleep. It's a quiet album composed of piano, acoustic guitar, soft strings and even softer six-part vocal harmonies. It can be a little too wistful at times but at others it captures the exquisite otherworldly feeling of drifting into a lushly decorated dream, with a hint of the unknown.

Songs of Note: Ljod i sand; Lost in You
