Högni Egilsson is best known for his work as frontman of Hjaltalín, and a singer in GusGus.

His first solo album puts forward a bold vision, meshing together choral compositions, experimental songwriting and bouts of glossy pop, topped with Högni’s deep and arresting singing voice.

Whether it’s entirely successful will become clearer with repeat listens, but “Two Trains” is an inarguably ambitious release that stands out from the pack.

Stream “Two Trains” on Spotify.
