The second album from Aska is the first on Galakthorrö. Aska’s initial Synth-Wave underwent a metamorphosis into darkest Angst Pop. Disturbing frequencies are now part of Aska’s sound spectrum and merge with deeply sad melodies and skeletal rhythms. No shallow Wave, no dull Noise, but a fruitful symbiosis that is absolutely unique in this form. Aska remains accessible, at the same time creating a dense, apocalyptic atmosphere. This is decisively shaped by depressive and ghostly sounding vocals exclusively in Icelandic. On Út Við Sundin Grá Aska has perfected his technique: the words fall effectively phrased, and in an emotionally moving, magical fashion, into the complex arrangement formed by the raw sounds of analogue synths. The drum machine starts up for the ghost dance. Distant. Empty of human life. Darkness is more than the absence of light.
