Látlaus Ský is the acoustic helicopter in the night. With soft bladed vocals and the steady rise of raw emotion coming over the hills. Precise calm, waiting. Then as if you had always known, you arrive. Electronic composer Látlaus Ský smoothly blends a background in acoustic guitar, ambient synths, and hypnotic percussion into what makes you forget the world ever existed. He calls it arctic-pop. Whatever it is, it comes from the world of a person who lived among frozen trees and moss for two decades and is just now crawling out of the forest and into the moonlight.
