Útidúr is an Icelandic combo whose a pair of tracks are taken from the album This Mess We`ve Made (2010). More
concretely, it is a spellbinding listening because of providing cinematic chamber/baroque/Balkan
folk/pop waltzes and chirping male-female interactive singing (Fisherman´s Friend), and on the other
side, diving deeply into subtle melancholy which is epic and lamentable simultaneously
(Grasping for Thoughts). The group
have hinted to be influenced by such artists as Angelo Badalamenti, Calexico,
Beirut, Ennio Morricone, however, they have managed to add their own, northern
touch to the aforementioned artists` sound.
