Yndi Halda - Enjoy Eternal Bliss

Artist:Yndi Halda
Album: Enjoy Eternal Bliss
Year: 2006
Genre: Post - Rock, Experimental, Instrumental

Yndi Halda
are a post rock band from Canterbury, United Kingdom. 'Yndi Halda' is an Icelandic phrase that means 'enjoy eternal bliss'; it comes from Odin's Raven Magic, an ancient Icelandic poem, also the name of their "self-titled" debut. The band's music is characterized by expansive, cinematic pieces that have seen the group compared to modern classical and post rock - however, Yndi Halda's work is usually considered more thematically optimistic or hopeful, and more song-based than artists of those genres. In their own words: "We play in a barn on the top of a hill and open the double doors to see the sun set sun rise. We frolic with the farm dogs who live in the barn." With one beautiful soundscape after another, Yndi Halda create something bigger than an emotional rollercoaster, it's more like a full-on mountain assualt through thick blizzards and incredible sunshine.
