Ólafur Arnalds Wins BAFTA For Original Television Music


Ólafur Arnalds with award presenter Victoria Wood.
Nettwerk One Music composer Ólafur Arnalds was in London on Sunday evening, where he received the highest honour, winning the BAFTA (British Academy Of Film And Television Arts) for Original Television Music in recognition of his compositions for the crticially-acclaimed British TV series, Broadchurch.

On his Facebook page, Arnalds wrote of the win: ”Now that I’ve had a bit of time to process things. I need to give credit where credit is due. I was so nervous and shocked during my acceptance speech that I forgot anyone who wasn’t standing right in front of me. It’s pretty given that no one delivers four and a half hour of original music in the space of 4 months without some help. So I just want to give proper recognition to Bergur Þórisson, my genius little helper, who put just as many hours into this as i did myself. Also Viktor Orri Árnason, who not only transcribed and played the violin, but also provided some additional string arrangements in the later episodes. And of course Arnór Dan, who co-wrote and sung the end title theme. These people don’t get enough credit for their work, so here is to them! I am also in lifelong debt to the Broadchurch creative and executive team who gave me the freedom to express myself from the heart and encouraged me to be brave and bold. And yes, I will be doing Season 2."

Wild Strawberries is a Canadian pop band made up of married couple Roberta Carter-Harrison (vocals) and Ken Harrison, who are also, respectively, a physiotherapist and a doctor by trade. Over the years the Harrison's have built up a significant and loyal fan base, beginning with their self-released indie cassette "Carving Wood Spectacles" and subsequently their 1992 debut CD, Grace. 1993 EP, "Life Sized Marilyn Monroe", was the perfect precursor to their follow-up breakthrough album, "Bet You Think I'm Lonely".

After signing to Nettwerk in 1995, and seeing their album "Heroine" hit gold, the Wild Strawberries found themselves in a whirlwind of mainstream success, with more radio hits, an intense tour schedule (incl.

Coves Debut Album 'Soft Friday' Out September 2; First Single "Beatings" + Lynchmob Remix Out Today

 
Praise From UK Media For Soft Friday:

“Their electro-garage-rock wall of sound imagines The Velvet Underground force-feeding hallucinogens to The Ronettes… cold-blooded revenge pop that strikes like a shard of shattered plate to the heart.” - 9/10 NME

“Borrowing from fellow Reed-acolytes TJAMC, Mazzy Star and The Raveonettes, the debut album from Midlands boy-girl duo Coves ticks all the right boxes - primal drumming, razor-sharp guitars and lyrics that blur the line between romantic obsession and narcotic dependency… very good indeed.” – 4/5 Q Magazine

“a terrific debut full of scuzzed-up guitars, dirty synths, nihilistic lyrics and Wood’s magnificently bored - although never boring – vocals.” – Uncut

“There’s bits of Mazzy Star in here, bits of the Velvet Underground and hints of the Jesus and Mary Chain… atmospheric, distinctive and very enjoyable.” - DIY

“Languid vocals, reverb-treated feedback, narcotized echoes of 1960s girl groups via the Jesus and Mary Chain… a gripping debut album.” – 4/5 Financial Times

UK duo Coves will release their anticipated debut album, Soft Friday, in North America on September 2, 2014. Today sees the release of lead single “Beatings,” along with a remix from Lynchmob, available on iTunes.
