Örvar Smárason drops debut LP

Finally the time has come for múm's Örvar Smárason to release his 1st solo album. „Light Is Liquid“ is made up of eight precious electronic pop songs that show him both as a gifted songwriter and producer.

It’s an update of the sound that made múm one of the most revered Nordic acts since the 2000s, but it’s also slightly reminiscent of Boards of Canada’s pastoral beats or even the transcendental tracks of Arca and Björk. A heap of experience and a sure-footed feeling for style constitutes this record, but at the same time it feels like a young and fresh love affair with music.

Known for a unique blend of electronica, ambient sounds & experimental indie pop, múm has evolved into an open collective.

They also present a limited edition vinyl 10inch comprising of material that was recorded during previous installments of this event.

Team Dreams

Sóley, Sin Fang, Örvar Smárason (of múm) embarked on a project in 2017 to release a track a month. Now that it's December, the 12 tracks have formed the record "Team Dreams". It combines the individual strengths of three acclaimed musicians, blends folk sensibilities with futuristic pop beats.

This is easily one of the best albums the three artists have been involved in. Everyone brought their distinct sound: There is Sóley’s ethereal presence, Sin Fangs ability to craft powerful pop anthems and Örvar’s experience with translating emotions into sound. These songs wander between the bonfire intimacy of a piano ballad and slow-paced beats that echo cutting-edge R&B and club productions by artists like Jam City and Kelela.

We are happy to announce that the CD / 2LP is out today exclusively on anost.net, before it gets an official release early 2018.

Initial copies come with a limited poster!

múm - Silent Film Concert

We are very excited that múm will return to Berlin to play their live score to the silent film "Menschen am Sonntag" at Radialsystem V on 17. & 18. February, 2018. Get a taste of the film + score in the trailer

The event will also celebrate the record release of a limited vinyl edition of the score, recorded live at previous UM:LAUT shows!

'Menschen am Sonntag' is a german (silent) film classic. It's a portrait of a young generation in the late 20s. These 'Sunday People' are youngsters, and – tragically –  not yet aware, they are living on the eve of fascism. Its filmic style is modernist, light and prosaic – quite opposite to the famous expressionist Weimar Cinema of the same decade. 

- Full info & tickets via UM:LAUT

- Facebook events here for for 17. February & 18. February.
