On the Horizon: Over and Over, Kiasmos.

On the Horizon: Over and Over, Kiasmos.

Kiasmos is the collaborative endeavour of Ólafur Arnalds and Bloodgroup’s Janus Rasmussen, and being the heathens we are, Looped is the first we’ve heard from the mildly unlikely pairing. Nonetheless, in order to make up for lost time, it’s tricky even to so much as envisage the below leaving the proverbial stereo any time soon, so compelling is this organic, if electronically affected techno build. In Arnalds’ own words, Looped, ‘like most of our songs, was made late on a Friday night while enjoying a glass or two of a nice Scotch’ and intended as an absolute tech-yes intoxicant, it doesn’t exactly take the most prescient of visions to see these particular six minutes greatly inspiriting next year’s Sónar Reykjavik…

As part of ‘a much more Kiasmos-active 2014!’, they play Sónar Reykjavik February 15th.
