LISTEN Lára Rúnars’s “Moment”

There’s just something about the bands that hail from Iceland.

Perhaps it’s the chilly, oceanic climate, or maybe it’s the short days and longer nights, but there’s a certain haunting, otherworldly quality about Iceland-based bands like Sigur Rós, Of Monsters and Men and Björk.

Enter Iceland chanteuse Lára Rúnars, who just released her fourth album, entitled, “Moment.”

With poetic songs that speak of earth and air, and aching feelings of lost love, Rúnars latest album effort album starts with a bang and a beautiful electronic melody. Once her voice kicks in, we immediately were transported into her mystical, dark world—and we never wanted to leave.

Standout tracks:
