While short Icelandic summer is quickly ending, let’s go back to spring for a while together with the Reykjavík-based group Ylja.
It’s been two years since their second album “Commotion”, which we discussed with them a while back. Since then, they’ve been playing around Iceland and abroad and also started working on new material. And while they decided not to hurry about this, just before the summer they gave us a new video and one of their most delightful songs yet, “Í Spariskóm”.
Delicate and somehow fragile at first, over time it unfolds this kind of magnetism that makes you sit down and listen to it again and again – we’ve been keeping it on repeat ever since the release. Maybe because of the spring-like atmosphere of optimism and waiting for something beautiful to happen.
