I'm so sorry for the lack of updates... But here's something new I discovered while checking out what my last.fm neighbours were listening to ^^
Icelandic/New Zealander Hera Hjartardóttir makes folkpop that instantly had me think of Elin Sigvardsson. Her core audience seems to be in Iceland and while still in her early twenties she has already released four albums - three in English and one in Icelandic.
The song below was the one that appears to have sparked the interest in her music as it was featured in the acclaimed Icelandic movie "The Sea".
