Sólveig Matthildur rose to prominence as a member of DIY goth-wave trio Kælan Mikla, but her self-released debut solo album is a revelation.
Her sound world is one of deep reverb, distant beats and synths that merge into a warm fog of sound, with Sólveig’s huge singing voice floating somewhere inside.
Reminiscent of cult art-pop artists like Tamaryn and Zola Jesus, Sólveig’s work radiates a raw and direct emotional intensity, and she has a knack for seamless song arrangements. This is a debut to remember.
