This year has been amazing for music, but there are only a few albums that can be described as breathtaking. Such is the case with Ólafur Arnalds' upcoming album, ...And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness, which will be released next week. At only 23 years old, Arnalds seems to have outdone himself yet again with this gorgeous album. Describing this any further would not do it any justice, so go listen to the album in its entirety on his AP.net profile and enjoy getting lost in the beautiful atmosphere that this young composer has created. If you like bands such as Sigur Rós and Balmorhea, then this is for you. Enjoy.
