iTunes Review

Branching out from the Icelandic indie-folk sextet Seabear, Sóley has released a solo album that balances organic tones and low fidelity with innovative production and cleverly crafted avant-pop. We Sink starts with “I’ll Drown,” a hauntingly pretty lullaby where wooden percussion loops under lilting piano. Over this, Sóley’s double-tracked vocals hit a mysterious intonation that falls somewhere between Björk and Graham Nash. Nylon-string acoustic guitar tones open the following “Smashed Birds,” where Sóley sings wistfully as shuffled rhythms (played with brushes on a snare drum) and the quiet drones of an old organ slowly seep in. In “Bad Dream,” the murky production makes it sound like Sóley’s voice is piping in from the paper speakers of an old wooden radio—though it’s her self-sung harmonies in minor chords that give the song an elegant melancholy. The disturbingly titled “Kill the Clown” is even more eerie. Here, antiquated piano notes are accompanied by what sounds like a warbling theremin and twisted violin, which come together to give the song an unsettling vibe.

Great CD Overall

I really like this CD. It's definitely different, but in the best way.
Her voice is quite haunting in a beautiful way. She leaves you thinking about her voice after you're finished listening.
She's Icelandic. I think Iceland just makes people good at everything artistic.
My favorite tunes from this CD are:
1. Bad Dream - This song has interesting lyrics and is played to perfectly complement them, in my own opinion.
2. Pretty Face - This is the one she's famous for. I like it because of the way it was mixed.
3. Smashed Birds - This one has interesting lyrics as well, and it's got a great guitar line that gets stuck in my head.
4. Blue Leaves - I like the purity of the piano in this song, and it seems to be one of the less "creepy" songs.
5. I'll Drown - This is a great opener.

I like all the songs, and would highly recommend this to anybody in the mood for something slower that makes you think.

Deep

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Also a member of the Icelandic indie acts Seabear and Sin Fang, Sóley Stefánsdóttir performs delicate electronic pop on her own as just Sóley. Inspired by Scandinavian acts such as Sigur Rós and Múm, she began making music in her teens, and studied piano and composition at the Icelandic Art Academy in 2007. During that time she also played and sang with Seabear and Sin Fang, though at first she was afraid to sing too close to the microphone. She overcame that fear with experience and began...
