It’s been a looooong work week, and boy are we thrilled to kick off the weekend with a thrilling announcement: Iceland’s Sóley killed it this week in the polls and is now our exalted Artist of the Week!
Stemming from Iceland’s folk rock band Seabear and blossoming into her own sound, Sóley Stefánsdóttir, or simply Sóley, is Iceland’s new dark pop princess. With the whimsicality of Joanna Newsom and the eerieness of a horror film, Sóley’s narrative lyrics and haunting piano is like diving into Alice in Wonderland, in that Soley’s sound is dreamy, fantastic and colorful, yet leaves you with a creepiness that’s sort of inexplicable.
Have a listen to her track “Pretty Face,” and check out our winner’s interview! Congratulations, Sóley!
