Hugar is the Icelandic duo which include Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson. Five years self-titled debut album, they announced the release of the second full-length. Varða is out on August 23rd via Sony Music Masterworks. According to the press release, it is tectonic shift between classical orchestration, alternative ambience, and post-rock spirit; the 14 tracks string together an epic expedition awash in stark piano chords, gusts of lyrical brass, high-powered strings, off-kilter guitar, and brushstrokes of electronic swells.
