Absent Minded, the debut album from young Icelandic composer and pianist Gabriel Olafs, is set for release on August 23rd through One Little Indian. Preceding the release, he has shared the single ‘Cyclist Waltz’, inspired by a poster of a French cyclist. “It hangs on the wall across from where my piano is, which is where I compose,” explained Olafs, adding:
“I love old movies and stories. I enjoy the fact that film scores demand a piece of music to have emotional depth. It has to convey multiple emotions and therefore has its part in telling a story.”
‘Cyclist Waltz’ comes with a befitting video and you can watch it below.
