Filled with dreamy and atmospheric soundscapes evocative of their native landscape, Rökkurró’s synthy, layered, textured and complex songs are drenched in feelings that are unsettled, dramatic and fluid. Innra, released in October 2014, was their first English album, but regardless of the language, their music is compelling and provocative. Lush swathes of fragile and plaintive vocals courtesy of Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir are ravelled up with enchanting melodies, the six piece combination managing to weave something delicate and wholesome. Rökkurró’s music is epic at the same time as being delicate, like standing in front of a marvellous landscape and being overwhelmed by the beauty of the world. Dazzling.
