Instrumentals we love, part eighteen: Ólafur goes disco (his way)

“Lit” by Kiasmos | A recommend from Tootsie, whose love of all things Icelandic is making me think of stuff for next year. Anyway. Kiasmos. You probably know one half of this group: Ólafur Arnalds, guy whose songs you’ve probably heard on TV or, on, well, anywhere. He’s collaborated with Janus Rasmussen from electro group Bloodgroup; they’ve actually been together for years but they only released their debut album towards the end of October. So, yes, you know half the reason why Tootsie loves this. The other half: it’s a surprisingly brooding, and also surprisingly accessible, dance number. I mean, music from Iceland tends to be either sweeping or harsh, and Kiasmos is technically techno, but this somehow manages to sit in the middle. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
