Árný is an Icelandic singer, songwriter and lyricist. Born and raised in a town of less than 500 people she spent her nights on the living room floor listening to Icelandic folk and pop female voices attempting to imitate their beautiful sounds. Her interest in songwriting appeared much later, writing her first song at the age of 20.

She released her EP “Walking Away” in collaboration with Stefán Örn Gunnlaugsson in 2015. The EP included three songs, one of which reached the top 20 list of Iceland’s highest-rated radio station. Árný is currently working on her first full length album to be released in early 2018. The music may be described as a subtle blend of acoustic and electronic elements. A captivating performance entwines vulnerability and strength, a battle mirrored in the lyrics which are written about the struggle to overcome inner barriers and allowing oneself to be vulnerable.
