The lure of the lighthouse brings Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, the co-lead vocalist in Of Monsters and Men, together with Ólafur on the sixth collaboration for Island Songs. Nanna is from the tiny, scattered community of Garður on the Reykjanes peninsula. Two lighthouses sit on the wind-battered seafront that will be the setting to Particles.
Particles was two friends, hanging out and making music together.
