Lost by Hugar







Experimental duo Hugar, composed of musicians Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson, have worked alongside their fellow Icelandic luminaries Björk, Sigur Rós, Ólafur Arnalds and Johann Johannson, and they have released two albums and the soundtrack to the film The Vasulka Effect.

Lost is the band's new single, a first sample from their upcoming album, due out in 2022 via XXIM/Sony.

“There’s something almost magical about a powerful force literally ripping the land apart, and new life appearing in the space that’s created,” says Þórisson, referring to the inspiration for the song, the fault running through Þingvellir, the national park located 40 km northeast of Iceland's capital. “We wanted to translate that scenario onto these great, temporal shifts and upheaval in our world and ask: What happens? There must be something new that grows from them,” says Jónsson.

A contemplative track, Lost indicates a minimalistic and spacious direction of Hugar's work, based on a piano motif, and airy synth passages.
