Last month we brought you the debut single from Iceland's Arny Margret. We said that it was "... perfectly familiar despite not sounding quite like anyone else." She just released a second single, and "akureyi" keeps that sound going perfectly. Margret sounds like your favorite acoustic singer/songwriters that don't quite fit into folk but are maybe a little bit folk, but she just has this wonderfully unique vocal delivery. It's warm and welcoming while keeping you at a little bit of a distance. According to a press release, the new song is "... about how you judge yourself unfairly through the eyes of those that would put you down," which could explain the overall vibe of the song.
You can watch the video for "akureyri" below. intertwined is due out February 25 on One Little Independent, and can be pre-ordered/pre-saved here. For more on Arny Margret, check out the artist's website.
