Composer Páll Ivan frá Eiðum has finally delivered the type of massive mega-hit we all knew he was capable of! With Tinder On The Toilet, Páll Ivan offers a stunning, heartfelt and, ultimately, heart-breaking meditation on This Modern World as it relates to The Human Condition. Yes, Tinder On The Toilet is a philosophical treatise on the alienating disassociation we often suffer as a result of our inability to contextualize ourselves in the world we are constantly creating through our hyperimmersion in technologies that have far surpassed our comprehensive capabilities, an apt requiem for a type of being that’s quietly fading into the background forever — a yearning lamentation for a time when “love” wasn’t something you sought out while taking a steaming dump.

“I am shit,” Páll Ivan seems to declare in his deadpan drawl, “everything is shit! The whole world is a big pile of shit,” he goes on. “Please, love me,” he concludes.

The song is also really catchy. Give it a listen.
