Hildur Vala – Lalala


Published November 3, 2006

Hildur Vala, the winner of the hugely popular TV show/singing competition Icelandic Idol, is back with her second album and this time it’s not an album of covers but all new songs by various Icelandic musicians. It’s called Lalala. Here’s an Icelandic lesson for you: lala means so and so. Lalala could be translated Na na na (as in Hey Jude by the Beatles – for another example see The Offspring’s nineties smash hit Self Esteem). This album is more so-so than na na na: easy listening jazzy pop that leaves no mark, but is extremely radio friendly. Buy this for your grandmother on your mother’s side as a Christmas present. PH
