GlerAkur’s debut full-length to be released next month

Ambient / Post-Rock

GlerAkur is the moniker Icelandic composer and sound designer Elvar Geir Sævarsson has chosen to represent the unique cinematic music he creates apart from his engagement as a sound engineer at the National Theater of Iceland. Icelandic for ‘Glass Field’, GlerAkur draws inspiration from post rock, drone and ambient music, as well as black and doom metal, blending and bending sound into hypnotic waves of dreamlike atmosphere that Rolling Stone hailed as ‘brutally irresistible’, calling for comparison to ‘Metallica covering the live half of Pink Floyd’s 1969 album Ummagumma.’

Listen here to Fagurt Er Á Fjöllunum Núna“, taken from the upcoming debut album “The Mountains Are Beautiful Now” (out July 21). Pre-order your Digipak CD, 2CD book edition or vinyl (black or limited blue) at http://smarturl.it/glerakur-mountains!
