Why do we like this?

Let it be known that some incredible musical talent hails from Iceland (think Seabear, Ólafur Arnalds, Pascal Pinon, I could go on and on).

For a country of around 330,000, Iceland produces an impressive amount of musical talent. How so much talent can come from such a tiny island is beyond me. Is there something in the water out there? Maybe it's genetics? Or perhaps it's the mystical beauty of the country that keeps people inspired. Yeah, that's got to be it.

There's nothing "new" about Ólöf Arnalds. The multi-instrumentalist with the haunting, honey-like voice has been on the Icelandic scene since 2007. But to me, her music is timeless.

"Surrender" is a goose bump inducing song from Arnalds' second album Innundir Skinni (Under The Skin), in which she plays the charango, an Andean stringed instrument. Oh yeah, and Björk is on the track too, lending her vocal brilliance.
