Loom
by Ólafur Arnalds & Bonobo
(3 plays) | (0 fans)

Ólafur Arnalds recently shared with listeners, "Hey everyone, Last year Bonobo and I spent a couple of days in the studio, after traveling and camping together in the Icelandic highlands, with no intention other than to spend some quality time with music. 'Loom' is one of the songs that came from those sessions and as time passed, and I started writing the rest of the album, I kept coming back to it. The serene energy of the song is perfectly encapsulated in Neel's beautiful video — a true testament to getting lost in the moment, as we did." Check out that gorgeous video here; it'll make you ache so hard to slip those travel shoes on again: https://bit.ly/364SgWe

Duet between the two artists that Helado Negro said is, "about all the ways we feel and the complicated things we do to try to understand this feeling. ‘Spaceship shaped words fly through your world unheard’ is a lyric that describes how alien the feeling can be and how hard we make it to be known." https://heladonegro.bandcamp.com/track/i-fell-in-love

New collab between the Swedish group and North Carolina singer/songwriter: https://littledragon.bandcamp.com/ “When we reached out to Moses we didn’t know what to expect,” Little Dragon wrote in a statement. “What we received was very stripped down, with his beautiful voice. We jammed along and sent it back. It bounced back from his end with added horns and sounded beautiful to our ears. We are very proud of this.” Watch the official music video here: https://youtu.be/ytI9A0u88Bk And check out an intimate Little Dragon performance live on KEXP from Upstream Music Fest in 2018. https://youtu.be/gFLrDrn6kEQ - and a 2017 in-studio by Moses Sumney: https://youtu.be/NPeji3NS4uE
