Icelandic producer—and player of many instruments—Ólafur Arnalds started his solo career in 2007 with Eulogy for Evolution, and has been making ambient piano and string arrangements ever since. His career as a solo artist is vaguely reminiscent of fellow Icelander Jónsi’s first album, Riceboy Sleeps, in that it contains some of the more beautiful compositions—with the exception of the untouchable Philip Glass—I have heard in quite some time. This track “Fok” is a throwback to his to his 2008 EP, Variations of Static.

The track itself contains a beautiful piano loop mixed with some light beats and gorgeous strings. It’s a rather dark song that is as beautiful as it is extraordinarily bleak. Listen with care, and be swept away.
