- Jón Þór
- Frúin í Hamborg
With “Frúin í Hamborg”, Jón Þór has returned to his first love; jangly, guitar-heavy scando-pop with choruses that weld themselves to your brain. He crafts his lyrics in Icelandic, giving him the confidence to explore fragile lyrical themes, and here, he wears his heart very much on his sleeve.
“Stelpur digs into the essence of being young, desperate and lovesick in the midst of the whirlpool of a drinking binge in the Reykjavík nightlife” (Straumur). Einmana Menn follows the the after-effects; regret and loneliness. Ég er á Vesturleið is about rejuvenation and a need to escape, and the title track, Frúin í Hamborg, is about losing grip, finding delirium and sinking deeper though finding light in the most unlikely of places. Musically the e.p. follows this journey and is upbeat, ebullient, summer indie-pop music.
“Best summer jam […] 100% pure Icelandic summer hookup jam” – Reykjavík Grapevine / IS
“In ‘Stelpur’, the ridiculously catchy chorus sticks to your frontal brain for weeks after listening to it.” – Straumur / IS
