about

Blindfold is the alias of Biggi from Ampop, and is the latest in a long line of Icelandic artists to record for Resonant; however, while retaining the atmospherics and serenity of the output of many of his fellow countrymen, this eponymous collection has little in common musically with his compatriots.

In fact, Blindfold is rather difficult to classify; ultimately, this is very accessible melancholic electronic pop with an acoustic element - melodic but backed with sparse, emotive, organic, textured arrangements, coming across on the whole as understated, warm and earnest.

Direct comparisons are therefore hard to draw, with only maybe Piano Magic (circa "Artist's Rifles") and Tarwater springing to mind, and with the two achingly fragile vocal numbers that segment the album reminiscent of Maximillian Hecker.
