Lay Low – Please don’t hate me


Published November 3, 2006

Lay Low’s country blues is a breath of fresh air into Icelandic music life. Especially considering the fact that girls of her age hardly ever produce anything this original. Lay Low’s strength lies in composing fine tunes but it’s the lyrical department that could use some quality control. Songs mostly about love and regret with a fair bit of hymn-like lyrics that at times suffer from the syndrome so many artists trying to express themselves in a non-native tongue suffer from – not knowing the language they’re working with. But the songs are excellent, the production good and the guitar playing fine. An honest, somewhat original (at least by Icelandic standards) album that doesn’t sound like a debut at all, but the work of an experienced artist. A fine CD. PH
