Boomkat Product Review:
And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness takes its name from a line in Bela Tarr's Werckmeister Harmonies, a film that Arnalds cites as a major inspiration for this album.
For this latest project Arnalds has set aside the homespun electronic productions of his prior releases and has instead looked to a bigger sound, assisted by fellow Icelandic maverick Barði Johannsson (known for his work with pop/electronica outfit, Bang Gang).
Tracks like 'Tunglið' and 'Gleypa Okkur' really benefit from additional live instrumentation, inc drums and noisier, rockier elements all helping to broaden Arnalds' repertoire beyond neo-classical parameters.
