Inspired by the unique landscape of her homeland, Icelandic composer/ musician Eydis Evensen has created effortless beauty here with new EP Frost .
Minimalist but effective, her elliptical piano playing spirals around strings, creating an eerie soundtrack to the famous mountains, geysers and hills.
Tracks like the swooning Svartnaetti and Dawn Is Near have an enigmatic, cinematic intensity.
Evensen is another impressive addition to the ever growing stable of significant young ambient artists.
Released via XXIM Records on April 8th
