Two songs from Ólafur Arnalds were nominated, one for the best dance/electronic recording and the other for best arrangement, instruments and vocals. Both songs were made in collaboration with other artists.
The best dance/electronic nomination he got with the song ‘Loom’ that he made with a British electronic musician, Bonobo. The other nomination was for his song ‘The Bottom Line’, which was made in collaboration with a German musician Josin.
Ólafur says that it came as a surprise to be nominated in such distinct categories. However, he is happy to receive these nominations. “It’s great to get nominated, since we spend a lot of time creating and perfecting these details,” he comments.
Although this is Ólafur’s first time receiving Grammy nominations, he has previously been nominated for a BAFTA and an Emmy. He says that nominations like these come with a lot of attention.
The Grammy Awards will be held January 31st in Los Angeles. Ólafur has yet to book a flight to the event.
