My wife heard a story on NPR about Ólöf Arnalds and was adamant that I give the song “Klara” a listen. I’m glad she did, because the song is different than anything else I’ve heard. She says she wrote the song for her sister on her 18th birthday to tell her to be creative with her life. I’m in the process of tracking down the CD which was recently released for the first time in America though it has been out in her native Iceland for a few years. Please give this song a listen, or better yet buy the album.
