SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Ólöf Arnalds, Volksbühne, 8pm
Many Berliners are familiar with producer and composer Ólafur Arnalds, a member of the German-born, London-based Erased Tapes label.
But it’s only fair to say that this musical inclination runs in the family, and one simply needs to turn to his cousin, Ólöf Arnalds, as proof.
Arnalds has been active in Icelandic band múm since the mid 2000s, and released her own debut solo album,Við Og Við, in 2007.
Since then, she has gone on the release two more albums, the most recent of which, this year’s Sudden Elevation, is her first consisting of only English.
In addition to being a solo artist and playing in múm, Arnalds has also studied music since the late 80s, and is proficient in violin performance and classical singing, with a degree in composition and new media. Joining Arnalds at the Berlin show is British singer-songwriter Scout Niblett. Natalye Childress
