More Music than Music

BUY ALBUM Digital download: Eu 9.99 (Bandcamp).

  • This is a party album that goes beyond happiness and is also about dancing to find yourself. Minimal old-fashioned beats with vocals, soul-searching discotheque filled with dancing philosophers and thinkers of all shapes and sizes, sweating to the beats and regularly screaming „Eureka!“ as they discover something very important.

    This album is not a concept album per se, but there is a party going on. This party might not only be about happiness though, but also somehow about dancing to find yourself. Bertel likes minimal old-fashioned beats and Heiða likes existentialism and weaving vocals together. The outcome is a soul-searching discotheque filled with dancing philosophers and thinkers of all shapes and sizes, sweating to the beats and regularly screaming „Eureka!“ as they discover something very important. Think of all the philosophers from the Monty Python‘s sketch when the Philosophers are playing football. Now, put them all onto a dancefloor. That is what this album is about. It‘s a bit quirky, but if you give into the fun, you might discover something about yourself.

  • Ruddinn is the mood of a man, Bertel Ólafsson, trying to escape the world by doing what he loves most: Making music. A few albums into his creation he called in a fellow musician and artist, Heiða Eiríks, to do a few vocals, and she had so much fun weaving melodies and lyrics into his upbeat sound-world that she stuck around for a second album, this one. Bertel comes from a completely different musical background than Heiða, but they both enjoy a good melody and a nice beat. Heiða is making music in many other projects, solo and with groups, but the Ruddinn-project is an ongoing experiment alongside all other things she does.
