'Black Shore', a new track from Úlfur

Spotted this video on Vimeo earlier and it grabbed my eye immediately. The song is by a fellow named Úlfur (full name Úlfur Hansson) who I’m 99% sure is the bassist for Jonsí’s band when he tours. Striking out on his own he’s created this beautiful electronic track which reminds me a bit of something you might hear in a Miyazaki film. The video was directed by Máni M. Sigfússon who created an abstract piece of art that’s sort of gothic Enya. He directs videos for all the biggest Icelandic musicians, so I’d highly suggest you check out the rest of his videos as well.

Hopefully Úlfur releases a full-length album soon, I’m really digging his sound.
