Today I stumbled upon Hugar

A beautiful collection of songs from Iceland. Hugar are Bergur Þórisson & Pétur Jónsson. Haunting and uplifting tunes, which provides an evocative soundscape to relax too. Þórisson & Jónsson have been playing together for many years in all kinds of different bands but in early 2012 they decided to form a group of their own where they could experiment.

The album is available on Bandcamp on a name your own price basis. The other instrumentalists are, Ólafur Arnalds – Drums, Pétur Björnsson – Violin, Sólveig Vaka Eyþórsdóttir – Violin, Guðbjartur Hákonarson – Viola, Hrafnhildur Marta Guðmundsdóttir – Cello, Björgvin Ragnar Hjálmarsson – Clarinet and bass clarinet.
