Jófríður Unveils ‘Anew’

As you might have noticed from our recent interview, the young Samaris, Pascal Pinon and Gangly singer Jófríður Ákadóttir has been busily preparing a solo record over the last year.

We got another glimpse of this intriguing work-in-progress today, via a live session recorded in Porto earlier this year. It’s a track called ‘Anew’, recorded with beautiful natural reverb.

Jófríður has been playing out her new song cycle in various live incarnations lately. One show, an Airwaves off-venue at Hotel Alda, yielded this recording of a memorable song called ‘White Sun’.

“You’ll hear when the record comes that the lyrics have a story,” says Jófríður. “I get inspiration from the weather, the time of year, where I am in the circle of the year. And it’s been a year since I started writing it… it’s like completing a circle.”
