First album, repressed. "Einóma is the work of two close Icelandic friends and long time studio partners. Having initially dabbled in the world of short film making commencing from the tender age of 13 years old, an early fascination was developed for sound and its ability as a tool to compliment and often drive storytelling. This dominant fascination within their work soon became more and more prominent to eventually override the filmmaking and to take primary importance within their creative goals. Initially adopting a sound of pure ambience and filmic sensibility, their production approach slowly developed into more rhythmically oriented pieces along with a backdrop of their much loved soundtrack oriented aesthetic. Having released only one EP to date on the Icelandic Uni:Form label, Undir Feilnótum is their debut album and first release of many with Vertical Form. Their work cleverly combines elements of both influence and invention that so much of todays electronic output falls short of, whilst simultaneously maintaining and balancing a distinct production approach that firmly places their sound within the premier league of experimental recording outfits. Undir Feilnótum is a dark and deeply atmospheric album, incorporating eight tracks clocking in at 38 minutes in length, each cut firmly demonstrates their obsessive skill for programming, intricate sequencing and rhythmic construction providing a body of work consisting of varying themes, moods and tempo's whilst continually forging ahead with a fresh outlook on both their own sound and the format of contemporary electronics."
