I thought I posted a video of Ólöf Arnalds at the time of writing a review of her Sudden Elevation album but it seems not; so, I’ll make amends now.

Some have criticised her for not singing in her native Icelandic but the words are so kooky, I don’t think it really matters what language she is using.

I’m not too sure about the kaleidoscopic effects on the video but the effect of the song is still mesmerizing.

She seems to be within her own world and takes the listener there with her.

The album from which this song comes, on One Little Indian records, is high on my list of favourites of the year

if you like this, you should also watch her NPR Tiny Desk performance.
