Ólöf Arnalds finished her 2nd Album
Icelandic folk chanteuse Ólöf Arnalds returns to NYC in June for three more shows.
Ólöf's debut was "Við og Við", produced by Kjartan Sveinsson from Sigur Rós. It won Best Alternative Album @ the Iceland Music Awards as well as Record of the Year at Iceland's largest daily newspaper, Morgunblaðið. 2008 saw Ólöf play festivals throughout Europe. Highlights include sharing a three-way bill with Björk and Sigur Rós at Iceland's Náttúra concert, and opening for Björk in Athens, Greece.
Ólöf has just finished recording her second solo album which was once again produced by Kjartan Sveinsson along with Skuli Sverrisson (Laurie Anderson), Shahzad Ismaily (Tom Waits, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), and Davíð Þór Jónsson (Mugison).
