Premiere: Indriði’s Ode To Dark “December”

Icelandic solo artist Indriði has unveiled the second track from his forthcoming album ‘Ding Ding’. It’ll be Indriði’s second album, and it promises to follow on where the soothing, introspective indie-folk-slacker-rock sound of his first left off.

The track, “December,” comes with a striking video that was made in collaboration with video maker Blair Alexander and visual artist Kristín Helga Ríkharðsdóttir.

Says Indriði, of the song:

“December is a track about the month December, the darkest time of the year.
When it’s the Darkest time of the year things can get pretty dark.
And your way of dealing with it may not be the most clever way.
and you know it. But you just keep trucking and deal with it later, now is not the time”

‘Ding Ding’ will be released on May 18th via the NYC-based label figureight. You can pre-order the album now, and get “Amma” and “December” immediately. A ltd. edition cassette release is promised in the near future.
