‘Saumur’ is the latest album to be released on Mengi’s label, and features ambitious musical creations from a trio of talented musicians: Skúli Sverrisson on bass, Hilmar Jensson on guitar and Arve Henriksen on vocals. The album surveys a vast range of emotions, from tranquility to chaos, with listeners guided through each transition by Arve’s soaring falsetto. The album was recorded at Sundlaugin, the old swimming pool in Mosfellsbær that was turned into a recording studio by Sigur Rós, but the trio will be recreating the sacred sounds of ‘Saumur’ at this release party. Don’t miss out on this enchanting evening of music.

At Mengi on Thursday, July 21 at 21:00 — Admission: Free!
