Hugar :: New Track :: Waves ft Arnór Dan
May 4th, 2017 | News
Hugar are a duo; Bergur Þórisson & Pétur Jónsson, they make very sad building orchestral and beautiful music.
For their latest single they roped in Arnór Dan (Agent Fresco) to collaborate and sing with them. ‘Waves‘ is an emotional wistful roller-coaster that plunges the listener, quite literally beneath the stormy waves of the ocean. Good stuff indeed.
‘Waves’ is the first in a series of vocal collaborations that Hugar are planning; the second is with Jófríður Ákadóttir, the acclaimed musician who’s already behind a number of projects (Pascal Pinon, Samaris, JFDR, GANGLY) and recently name checked by Björk as one of her inspirations.
‘We are an instrumental band’ says Þórisson ‘but writing for vocalists is something that has always been exciting for us. It’s proven very inspiring to work with different singers as they obviously have their own characteristics and strengths that we have to work with and adapt to. It pulls us out of our comfort zone but at the same time we have learned a lot! We’re hoping to work with a wide variety of singers on this project to keep us on our toes and make something special every time.’
