Announcement:

It is with extreme excitement and absolute bliss that we welcome Árstíðir (meaning “Seasons” in English) to the FlyingFox AB family. The stars truly aligned regarding this collaboration of being “the right place and the right time”, and we couldn’t be more pleased to help this amazing band reach levels anyone has yet to see.

With their utterly unique sound blending folk, rock, classical, progressive, and indie, Árstíðir weave both traditional and electronically-inspired instrumental threads together with soaring vocal harmonies (the kind that gives you goosebumps), that critics have described as “beautiful and atmospheric” and “utterly mesmerizing”.

Whether in a train station in Germany, a concert hall in Russia or a bar at home in Reykjavík, theirs is music that captivates audiences and creates a kind of intimacy leading critics to write, “[Hvel] is simply a stunning album, beautifully written and arranged, with a real magical quality to it,” and that live performances “may be the closest I’ve ever come to worship.” The band members’ wide range of musical backgrounds and experience, combined with professional interests ranging from law to literature and engineering to computers, make them unique in their wholly democratic approach to music making and performance. Entwining the elements of sound with lyrics describing heartbreak, longing, memory and a deep connection to the circular oneness of life, they marry organic acoustic traditions and modern electronic arrangements with intricate simplicity and unpretentious skill.

Through their sweeping vocal harmonies backed by lush layered orchestral instrumental arrangements, Árstíðir sings, “Not everything you feel can be seen, but the feeling lasts so long” and hopes that what the audience feels will linger long after the last note is played.
