Tor is influenced by the mystical sounds of Glastonbury, a remote town in Somerset, in the SouthEastern part of England. Glastonbury is surrounded with goddesses, landscape Zodiacs, ancient myths, holy relics and heroic legends - dating back to the middle ages. The holy Glastonbury Tor was a center for pilgrimage, and has been associated with the Avalon, and identified with King Arthur and the holy grail.
Tor was mostly written in Glastonbury, during a week long residency in 2016. The tunes were then recorded and produced in various remote parts of Iceland, and finally finished off in Harpa´s studio, as well as in Studio Bambus with Stefán. The soundscape consists of mystical sounds, dreamy mantra vibes, tweaky beats and heavy synths with a touch of Grúska Babúska´s signature wonky soundscapes.. The lyrics are in Icelandic and orchestrate the stuckness of the past, new life and death, regrets and it´s healings, mindfulness and a deep longing for the now.
