Snorri Helgason – Freeze Out
Snorri Helgason – Over (home demo)
Snorri Helgason, aside from having a name that is reminiscent of a Tolkein character knows how to put a song together. not just that but he can play a well put together song pretty damn well. All in all I am listening attentively. A combination of folky instrumentation, souly bluesy vocals, and a garagey poppy kind of production is bundled together simply and rather satisfyingly. The Icelandic has a wonderful gift for filling his songs with personality and an appeal which goes beyond the music, I want to meet Snorri and watch him write a song.
Snorri is one of many fascinating artists to be featured on the 3rd Made In Iceland compilation. If you are a bit stuck for new music then you could do so much worse than check this out and snag some of the free downloads. And then have a sniff around his official site for the demo.
