Icelandic neo-classical artist Ólafur Arnalds has announced the release of his second full-length album, …and they have escaped the weight of darkness, in North America on June 8th via Erased Tapes (Peter Broderick, Nils Frahm).

…and they have escaped the weight of darkness will herald another intense year for Arnalds: the album will set off a world tour, starting in China in March 2010. It will also bring him to the UK for his first performance with a full-blown symphonic orchestra conducted by André de Ridder (Nico Muhly/Damon Albarn) on July 1 at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. The 23-year-old composer is bringing his beguiling electronic chamber pop and classical compositions to destinations the world over, with sights set on the US and Canada later this year.

Zebra Tracks is a new coming disco-punk, Indie band dedicated to create complete chaos on stage and to work in absolute order in the studio…
Being controversial personalities, Zebra Tracks enjoy the disco groove as much as the punk style and the synth sounds, all combined into the same songs, all expressed sincerely also on the band’s artworks which have been repeatedly awarded.
Their first self-release in early 2006 was the double A-side single “Silicone Valley/ Borealis Fallacia”. The rapid sale out of the collector’s item CD single (1000 copies) and the number of tickets in the concerts were an unexpected success.
In June 2007 the “Zebra Tracks EP” receives great critics and the band was voted among the best Greek bands of 2007 from the majority of the music media.
Their debut album “A family picture from…Zebra Tracks”, released a few months ago, has already put a smile on many radio producers’ and music critics’ faces and it’s one of the most popular albums among the indie fans.
