Icelandic band Hugar releases new EP Þjóðlög/Folk Songs

Hugar’s EP Þjóðlög/Folk Songs is their original take on ancient Icelandic folk songs, recreated in a modern ambient sound. Hugar about the EP: “These are very old Icelandic songs that were part of an oral tradition, luckily saved for the nation by having been written down in the late 19th century. We feel that it is very important to keep these songs alive. They reflect our long, dark, raw winters with their themes of loss, grief and darkness. Our aim is to represent this sonically and these are some of our favourites from the collection.”
