Amiina’s Kurr for London’s aches

Amiina’s new full length, Kurr, is a great recovery album; the type of sound that you need to mend your broken body after three days of pretending to have overcome your jetlag in a foreign city and then crashing in a humiliating day ache of bones and muscles. I could blame the fall out of routine and stability on the late night dance off that occurred in some Panjshiri-type lounge. Or maybe it was the half-city walk-a-thon along the entire South Bank of London. Or it quite possibly may be due to the three and a half hour stand off that occurred during an incredible reenactment of Othello at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. But I know it’s really just because of my decision to finally…

Kurr’s beauty comes from its subtleties; the band has a keen ability to intersperse their many instruments throughout their arrangements with soundscape engineering rather than highlighting technique or a single sound. It’s that perfect blend of less-is-more that causes Kurr, and Aniima’s music in general, to be the soothing cure to our aches and pains caused by the acute angles of the trafficking within our daily life and times. I could take the easy road and tell you that they really just sound like the softer side of Sigur Ros, a band that they are continually collaborating with, but I think that I am just finally realizing that all Icelandic music contains this similar aesthetic of soft beauty and charm. Maybe I need to break out a little more.
