Like many other restless members of Reykjavík’s underground music scene, Indriði Arnar Ingólfsson has simply refused to stick to a certain sound or side project over the years. While he’s perhaps best known for his riff-slinging role in the hardcore-punk band Muck, Ingólfsson has also done a residency at New York’s respected Clocktower Gallery and cut a solo record (2016’s Makril) LP from an entirely different cloth than his last day job.
Next month’s ding ding album follows a similar path, casting a spell out of otherworldly melodies and moods instead of outright chaos.
Check out its first single below, along with cover art, a complete tracklisting, and a look at Ingólfsson’s back catalogue….
Writing the song with her and playing in that room sparked the idea that it was time for a new album, and on that moment, I finally found the focus to gather new work into a tight piece for the first time in a few years. Put loose strings together and had a frame to pull in things that fit and throw things [away] that don’t.
