Watch a Haunting Live Hrím Performance
March 9th, 2016 | News
Hrím are Ösp Eldjárn, Anil Sebastian and Cherif Hashizume. In Hindi, Hrim is a mantra of magical force, captivation and empowerment. In Icelandic, hrím is hoarfrost, or rime.
Serene, alluring, other-worldly and refined. Hrím captures and portraits music beyond our imagination. Graceful and immaculate vocals; intricate and sophisticated harmonies; daedal and organic electronics shape unique sonic landscapes.
Formed in early 2015, fronted by Icelandic folk singer Ösp Eldjárn, Hrim initially started as a duo with London Contemporary Voices choir founder and multi-instrumentalist Anil Sebastian (Imogen Heap). Led by Ösp’s pellucid vocals, the two started to write a collection of extraordinary songs exploring the interplay between intimacy and expanse, the duo fell in love with the work of production and programming wizard Cherif Hashizume, (Jon Hopkins/Brian Eno) and became a trio.
Hrim has since collaborated with some of the world’s most innovative musicians including Björk’s favourite Hang player Manu Delago and London Contemporary Voices choir who live shows with Imogen Heap, Basement Jaxx, Alt-J and many more.
Watch a recently filmed magical performance of their track ‘Ástarnetið’ live at St-John-at-Hackney with London Contemporary Voices and 12 ensemble.
Prepare for goosebumps!
