Sóley – Grow

Spring, at least in the meteorological sense rather than anything practically experienced, is here. Whilst not as predictable as the seasons, one thing you can be sure of is new music from Iceland’s Sóley.

Grow is a piano-led ballad which, as described in the intro to the video, is about hope and spring.

There are some absolutely beautiful moments here; the first comes in the third bar in the switch from minor key to major key. That by itself says that winter has gone.

It’s been released ahead of her new album Endless Summer which will be released on Morr on the 19th of May in Europe. If you’re an American you’ll have the privilege a couple of weeks sooner on the 5th.

Looking forward to this one. I’ve had some of her stuff before and, criminally, never written about her. I’ll remedy this once and for all, one hopes!
