Icelandic master of the cryptic and the captivating, Sóley has just released ‘Ævintýr’ off her forthcoming album Ask The Deep, and it’s every bit as soothing and melancholic as her previous releases.
The title itself alludes to a fairy tale, and elements of the music work together to place you into that environment. Dreamy, floating vocals coupled with creeping percussion and a subtle build give the track an unsettling yet triumphant feel; it’s as if the listeners have been unwillingly placed in a fairy tale and must try to craft their own happy endings.
Sóley’s album Ask The Deep is due out May 8th. Listen to its first single ‘Ævintýr’ below:
