Quite Chill: Rökkurró and "Það kólnar í kvöld...(It's Getting Colder Tonight...)

Today's random tune takes us to Iceland. Rökkurró was founded in Reykjavík in 2006 and released their debut album, Það kólnar í kvöld... (It's Getting Colder Tonight...) in 2007. Rökkurró has since released two more albums. Their music has been described as dreamy soundscapes, luscious palettes, graceful compositions, meticulously crafted, complex, and smooth sonic textures rounded out by a warmth transmitted through the fragile yet smooth and engaging vocals of Hildur Kristín Stefánsdóttir. This song, Ferdalangurinn, is from 2007's Það kólnar í kvöld... (It's Getting Colder Tonight...).
