Listen: Páll Ivan frá Eiðum - Expanding

This is Paul Ivan's "Expanding", one of his many experimental tracks which crosses the borders of the electronic genre. In the past it may have been chiptune or electronic pop - Well Ivan has done it in some form to very little exposure outside of his borough. Already a familiar name within the Icelandic music community, (check out this composition for the Symphony Orchestra) Ivan has built up a respectable list of collaborators including Borko, múm, and Slowblow. You can check out his eclectic Soundcloud for more details, but more importantly listen to the track below to kick-start your acknowledgment of Ivan, as his name will deservedly start to grow out of the depths of Iceland with his well-composed electronic beats, vocal austerity and industralised ambience - The Icelandic Eno.
