Hjaltalín Enter 4
Artist: Hjaltalín
Release: Enter 4
Label: Hjaltalín
Release Date: September 2013
Picked by: Nick Parry – New Media Assistant

Iceland’s Hjaltalín crept onto UK taste-makers’ radars this year with their highly anticipated third album, following previous chart-topping success in their homeland. The 8-piece’s third record ‘Enter 4’ was finally made available outside of the band’s Icelandic home, and it’s one that has translated incredibly well upon UK ears and beyond. Full of warmth and beauty, intimate in places and darker in others, ‘Enter 4’ is a silky smooth, wonderfully constructed record, and shows that when it comes to creating compelling pop music, Iceland has it down to a tee. Lead single ‘Crack in a Stone’ and album opener ‘Lucifer / He Felt Like a Woman’ are the standouts for me; both delicate, sombre, and incredibly absorbing. – Nick Parry
