Kiasmos share new single Sailed and announce new tour dates

28.5  2024


Today Kiasmos, the duo of Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds and Faroese musician Janus Rasmussen, share a new single from their long-awaited second album, which is set for release on July 5. The single drops ahead of a sold out show at London's Outernet tomorrow night, with an Autumn show at Troxy already announced for later this year, as well as international headline and festival appearances.

Following the recently dropped EP Flown and previous single Burst, today they share the crisp, delicate atmospherics of Sailed, which Arnalds describes as "one of the more playful processes during the making of this record was the creation of Sailed. A no rules kind of affair that resulted in us putting a breakbeat, synthesisers, 808’s, a choir, piano and strings all in the same song. A personal favourite of mine from the record and one I’ve been looking forward to sharing with the world."

Rasmussen adds: "This song indicated that we had an album ready. It serves as a summary of the work we've dedicated to this project over the years. It's like the essence of Kiasmos in 2024, which excites me. This song has a slightly broken beat, synths, strings, and a lot of tension—to me, it has it all."
