ESNS: 2018
In his native Iceland, Högni Egilsson is one of the country's best known contemporary singers and songwriters. The multi-instrumentalist regularly writes, composes and performs with Hjaltalin and was a full time member of the legendary GusGus, touring extensively in Europe and North America. In October 2017 Högni released his solo debut album Two Trains on Erased Tapes. The album embraces the spirit of the original European avant-garde and invokes these concepts in its chugging rhythms, metallic clangs and brooding choral arrangements while the lyrics speak of ominous clouds on the war-ridden eastern horizon and freight cars filled with gravel and dreams.
