Elín Ey


Published March 6, 2009

On her debut album, Elín Ey presents her energetic voice very fittingly to the sounds of her fragile guitar play. The sad tone and lyrics make this record perfect for getting drunk over love lost. This is also the point where “See you in dreamland” gets monotonous in a way – the songs seldom change their tune. “See you in dreamland” catches the sadness of being left and alone but does not stray from that theme and therefore gets boring on a full-length album: the songs have the same shuffled tempo and the same chords. However, Elín Ey manages to break that circle in some of her songs – “Coming to get you” or “Why don’t we do it in the road”, for example, both ass-kicking blues tunes that bring some verve. Some more of those would have done the record good.
