Life Story Love And Glory

Erased Tapes artists and friends Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm
have separately carved out a musical career that defies genres both
with their unique live shows and a loyal fan base that’s always eager
to hear what their prolific output will bring.
Their latest collaborative 2-track release ‘Life Story Love and
Glory’ is a live improv affair on two pianos, recorded in 2012 at
Nils’s Durton Studio in Berlin. Fans may wonder why they have
waited until 2015 to release these tracks, but having revealed a new
website www.arnaldsfrahm.com you may think this may not be
the end to their musical story this year.
“We would meet in Reykjavik or Berlin with the intention to share
some days off work, hiking, swimming or eating pizza. That is great
for a couple days, but after a while we would always end up back in
the studio, fiddling with synths or pianos.” – Nils Frahm
“You can hear in the beginning of ‘Life Story’ how I have already
started playing the piano whilst Nils is still moving microphones
around and preparing everything. It was all kept in!“ – Ólafur Arnalds
‘Life Story Love and Glory’ will be released as a 7” on Erased
Tapes – exclusively through record stores only on August 21, 2015
ahead of its digital release later on – as an ode to this classic and
beloved format.
The packaging design on heavy-weight brown card was crafted by
Torsten Posselt at FELD, Berlin.
Ólafur Arnalds is a BAFTA-winning multi-instrumentalist and producer
from Iceland. Ólafur is known for his unique mix of strings, piano with
loops and edgy beats crossing-over from ambient/electronic to pop.
Ólafur was a drummer of hardcore metal bands Fighting Shit and
Celestine, as well as others. In 2014 Ólafur announced his electronic
debut album under the Kiasmos project with Bloodgroup front man
Janus Rasmussen to much acclaim.
Nils Frahm works as an accomplished composer and producer in
Berlin. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played
contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the
world. For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an
incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work,
catching the ear of many fans.
'This is a dream pairing for you neo classical types. The Laurel &
Hardy of all things neo classical come together for a very special
limited release just for record stores’ – Norman Records
