Debut Hekla LP Out Now
14th September 2018
Icelandic theremin musician Hekla Magnusdottir releases her debut album Á on September 14th, via Phantom Limb. A combination of the traditional theremin sound and neo-classical ambience, the LP extends from the throbbing, apocalyptic dread of 'Muddle' to the baroque beauty of traditional Icelandic hymn 'Heyr Himna Smi∂ur'. The album title - Á - is similarly multifaceted in Hekla's native Icelandic: "a river is an á and also it means ouch like when you hurt yourself, and also when you put something on top of something you put it á (on) something."
