Icelandic Sóley’s music is both soulful and playful. She keeps her music in delicate shades and creates an imaginative universe of creaky rhythms and melancholy melodies. The elegant and fragile, folk-inspired songs have been sprinkled with silver glitter and adorned with coloured feathers and they seem childishly carefree as well as serious and sorrowful.
Inspired by: Joanna Newsom, Leonard Cohen, Beach House, Arvo Pärt, Keith Jarrett.
