Sóley performed sans-band last night at Loft Hostel. The top floor of Loft is a cozy, little bar/lounge/venue with dormer windows looking out over Bankastraeti and the colorful rooftops of city center Reykjavik. It was a great little (free!) show: a few friends and I curled up on the window benches with our Tuborg jólabjórar (Christmas beers) while Sóley made her strange, haunting, delicious music and told us how her newest song was inspired by a news report of a man being buried alive in Brazil.
If you haven’t listened to her music, now is the time:
P.S. If you missed her at Loft, Sóley will play with Biggi Hilmars and Pétur Ben on the 21st of December. More info here.
