This 2014 fourth album 'Palme' represents ÃlÃ¶fÂ´s most collaborative effort to date, and also perhaps her most profoundly sensual & affecting. Musically, it offers up an astonishing wellspring of fresh ideas and playful experimentation that move the sound on from the acoustic approach that predominantly defined her first three records, 'ViÃ° og ViÃ°' (2007), 'Innundir Skinni' (2009) and 'Sudden Elevation' (2013). ÃlÃ¶f Arnalds is an Icelandic singer and multi-instrumentalist. Classically educated on the violin, viola and self-taught on guitar and charango, ÃlÃ¶fâs most distinctive asset is, nonetheless, her voice - instantly captivating and possessed of a magical, otherworldly quality. Favourably compared with the likes of Vashti Bunyan, Judee Sill and Kate Bush, ÃlÃ¶fâs approach to making music remains highly individual: playful but intimate; accessible and uplifting, yet deeply personal and suffused with a timelessness that goes beyond the puckish inscrutability of her native tongue.
