New Music: The Seawolf x Rúnahild – Ylgr

The Seawolf first hit my radar back in August last year with his unique brand of “Viking lo-fi.” He’s back again with his new track Ylgr, a collaboration with singer and composer Rúnahild.

If the week is getting a little on top of you, this track may be the perfect antidote. It’s just over three minutes of complete chill. Electronic beats meld seamlessly with ancient chanting in a composition that is rich with atmosphere and something unexplainable that harks back to our ancestors. Listen and the little things just fade away.

The track is taken from The Seawolf’s new album Niflhiem, named after one of the nine worlds of Norse mythology. The album is out now and The Seawolf promises another eight to complete the set. I can’t wait.
