It is marked by a piano motif and ethereal synth washes, all gently nudged along by a driving rhythm. The track is indicative of their new album, a poised, contemplative blend of ambient electronica, meditative strings, and contemporary neo-classical elements that cover a wide range of themes but was born from a simple, yet profound, observation in their native Iceland.
Hugar is the joint musical project of Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson – the two multi-talented instrumentalists, composers, producers, and friends since childhood. Þórisson and Jónsson have forged a musical path all of their own with their genre-defying special Hugar sound. Earlier this year Hugar released their EP Þjóðlög/ Folk Songs, which marked their first release on XXIM Records.
