Soley Discusses "Endless Summer"
Wed, 24 May 2017 10:24:48
Icelandic musician Soley isn't known for her 'happy' music. It's been those dark, minor organ chords that have spoken to her most of her career. On her new record Endless Summer, however, she has taken a new direction. But make no mistake, this isn't one of your summer Beach Boy surf albums.
Endless Summer takes its direction from that craving for summer that happens during all those miserable winter nights - and in Iceland those last. However, there is also a sense of wonder in Soley's new record that has to do with the Nordic country's summer days when night never really comes.
Soley was also affected by the birth of her daughter. She didn't know “that love for one person could be so crazy.” And that also turned the musician to veganism. All of these life changes had a large impact on her music and found Soley hitting her first major chords.
ARITSTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Soley to discuss her new album, find out what caused her to make changes in her life and music, and to see just how much longer she is willing to continue down the path of being a musician.
