Darkly melancholic electronic artist Sóley has been a staple of the Icelandic music scene for years, performing with Sin Fang and Seabear since 2006 before moving on to release her first solo album, ‘We Sink’, in 2011. Her background is in classical and jazz piano, and she studied composition, piano and guitar at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. She draws inspiration from poetry, which some have noted comes through in her lyrics. Her music is often calming and melodic and makes for a comfortable night out, more so than with some of the rascals that frequent Húrra’s stage.
