Emiliana Torrini Receives Glowing Review in New York Times

Published March 31, 2009

A performance by singer Emiliana Torrini was described as “guileless and vulnerable” by a critic for the New York Times.
“It takes poise and discreet determination to keep such wispy thoughts from turning sentimental, and Ms. Torrini has both.” the review reads in part “Her songs don’t flaunt barbs or ironies; they’re as transparent as her
voice and arrangements. Yet her kind of lucidity is anything but naïve.”
Torrini is originally from Kópavogur, and while she’s been singing and performing since the age of seven, she came to international attention for her 1999 album Love in the Time of Science, and for the song Gollum’s Song, which appeared in the credits to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings.
