Yndi Halda - Enjoy Eternal Bliss (AWESOME !!!)

Genre : Post-rock, Experimental

Tracklist :

1) Dash and Blast
2) We Flood Empty Lakes
3) Illuminate My Heart, My Darling!

Yndi Halda are an indie-rock band from Canterbury, United Kingdom. ‘Yndi Halda’ is Old Norse for “Enjoy Eternal Bliss”, also the name of their “self-titled” debut. The band’s music is characterized by expansive, cinematic pieces that have seen the group compared to modern classical and post rock - however, Yndi Halda’s work is usually considered more thematically optimistic or hopeful, and more song-based than artists of those genres.

"There is something untangible about Enjoy Eternal Bliss, something that evades the analytical eye but is looming over the album. Perhaps a mysticism of sorts that enchants the band's music much in the way that Sigur Ros just seems to transcend the normal limitations of music in the creation of otherworldly songs. For a band that plays and records in a barn, Yndi Halda does quite a good job of making it look easy to churn out one of the year's best albums. Enjoy Eternal Bliss is easily the year's best self-released album, and there is no doubt that this band is only going upward from here."
