April Video A Day: Olafur Arnalds, “Old Skin” (Featuring Arnor Dan)

Sometimes a video is totally detached from the song it is used with, sometimes it’s quite literal, and often it’s sort of in between, as in today’s video. Olafur Arnalds is an Icelandic composer who is making waves in the modern classical world; his music has been featured on soundtracks such as The Hunger Games and Looper, and his latest album For Now I Am Winter just hit the top spot on the Classical Traditional chart. This clip features a song that’s more chillout vibe than classical, and the Gorton Fisherman looking main character takes a surreal plunge into his tub for a rave-like adventure.
