Dig For Fire's short documentary made around the first show in which Ólöf performed Við og við in full
Eins og sagt er ( or "As they say” in English) was Ólöf Arnalds graduation project from the Icelandic Art Academy's music department, 2006
While she has been favourably compared with the likes of Vashti Bunyan, Judee Sill and Kate Bush, Ólöf’s approach to making music remains highly individual: playful but intimate; accessible and uplifting, yet deeply personal and suffused with a timeless mystique that goes beyond the puckish inscrutability of her native tongue. Ólöf has also quickly proved herself as a magnetic, utterly self-assured stage performer, reliant as much on screwball humour, vaudevillian charm and even outright bawdiness, as much as the contrasting delicacy of her song delivery.
