Icelandic artist Högni prepares debut album
After recently announcing his debut solo album, Högni of of indie rock group Hjaltalín & electronic group GusGus is sharing his new single ‘Crash’. Debut LP Two Trains is due Oct 20th via Erased Tapes.
Högni describes new single ‘Crash’ by saying: “Through the thumping percussive accents and lamenting strings, the story envisions a catastrophic event in which a man is liberated from distress and affronts death as a passage. A suicidal musical incline.”
On the LP Two Trains, Högni goes on to say: “The music on Two Trains is a blue-print of a period in my life where I collided with my own self, and at that point I felt the indifference between the personal and the universal, the absolute consciousness of life’s unconsciousness. Perhaps it’s a feeling that cannot be conveyed, like watercolours that just seem to wash off into the sea. But also a flashing mirage that you can enjoy before you arrive at your last destination.”
