Just gathering some thoughts on what people predict about the new album. What will its 'sound' be compared to the other albums (Kveikur is their industrial rock album, Med Sud is their Indie Pop/Acoustic album, Untitled is their ambient album, etc.).
I mean... some criticism of their albums since Untitled has been that their albums lack variety. I honestly this album would be a change of pace. I mean seriously, none of the tracks we've been given sound remotely the same. They are all very electronic but beyond that, there isn't much. Ovedur seemed like a druggy continuation of Kveikur, Á seemed like haffsol and Enya had a baby, Nidur sounded a bit like Isjaki at first but ends sounding like the resolution of Saeglopur form Takk, and Varda is like Ágætis byrjun / Untitled with some Valtari sound mixing chucked in (I'm hoping they add a choir to Varda in the recorded version. I would love that).
I'm also excited to see what the album cover will be too. Every album cover they make is special to me. [I never liked Med Sud that much until later cause it really does describe the care free, no barriers feel of the album].
I think I'm just hyped over this album cause I was convinced that kveikur would be their last for some reason.
