Hugar: Lost

Hugar return with a first example of their yet to be titled next album, set for release early next year through XXIM/Sony. Lost finds the duo of Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson stepping aside from the orchestral approach of their recent material, and attempting something ambient electronica-based, and thoroughly meditative.

The band's new material draws inspiration from the fault running through Þingvellir, the national park located 40 km northeast of Reykjavík. “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. “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,” adds Jónsson.

More spacious and contemporary sounding, Hugar once again unfold the cinematic nature of their work, homogenizing elements from post rock, electronica and experimental ambiance.
