Snorri Helgason: Winter Sun

Words by

Published December 6, 2011

´Winter Sun’ is a jukebox of starry warmth, nostalgic romance, and carefree fun.  The album is acoustic simplicity mixed with reverb and celestial twinkles in a way that feels fresh and natural. Snorri has writing chops for days and composes tunes that made me want to watch fireflies from the back porch with a glass of lemonade. ‘Winter Sun’ is an album of soulful twang and vintage feel goodness that transported me back to my favourite Nashville hangout, surrounded by a room full of overalls, horn rimmed glasses and gingham. The arrangements are imaginative in texture and accompaniment, and the modern beats and atmospheric glitter add something unexpected and intriguing to Snorri’s song-writing. ‘Winter Sun’ is an album of beautiful songs that sound like they belong together.
