Árni Vilhjálmsson is an established artist, musician and actor in Iceland. He was a member and frontman of the legendary electro party-band FM Belfast before leaving to focus on his solo career.
It almost goes without saying that Árni’s new project is a world away from the ultra upbeat electro-party-pop he composed with his former band a few years back.
Now supported by the dreamlike vocals of Jarþrúður Karlsdóttir and Sóley Tómasdóttir, the impeccable but wild drumming of producer Þórir Bogason, Gylfi Sigurðarson’s hypnotic jew harp and percussions, the bass of Thomas Stanklewicz, and Albert Halldórsson’s soft guitar, Árni produces a relaxed and collected atmosphere, where—somewhat paradoxically—anything can happen.
He is now in the studio, feverishly preparing to release a new album under the moniker, Árni Vil that will be released in early 2019.
