about

With the song Apríkósur (e. apricots) Ari Árelíus reminds you to stop and have some fruit. The oxymoron of desiring what you already have comes into play. In Iceland a relatively short time has passed since it was possible to have fruit on your table, people still remember how an apple was a delicacy only enjoyed at Christmas. In our capitalist society we are constantly taunted to desire more, have more experiences, catch them all so being radical can be seen as contentment. Fixating on the small things like enjoying the wondrous fruit.
The songs obvious Bossa Nova influence juxtaposed with the harsh Icelandic language underscores this abundance of resources available to many.

lyrics

Apríkósur

Blessaður
Í örsskots stundu
Held af stað
Blómstra
Óma

Dásama
vetrarbrautina
sameinast
Blikna
Fjara

Milli hlýrra sængurfata
Gefur lífið frá sér sætan ilm
Apríkósur
Milli hlýrra sængurfata
Og inn í eyra mér
Hljómar þetta kver

Andartak
Í augum þínum
Hjartaslög
Rísa
Falla

Tungutak
Í rifnu tjaldi
Regndropinn
Syngur
Stinur
