Cool New Video Round Up :: Hildur, Karó, Hafdís Huld & Epic Rain
August 2nd, 2017 | In The Spotlight
We hope you are having a blast of a summer. It’s sizzling hot music wise over these parts. Summer jams are springing up left-right-and-centre.
The girls have been super busy releasing some super pop songs to keep your toes tapping whilst lapping up your sweet sweet ice-cream. We are super excited to bring you the latest tracks from Hildur, Karó and Hafdís Huld. We are also featuring the first taster of their forthcoming album from Epic Rain!
Lets kick off with the lovely Karó who has not been seen since her massive debut tracks ‘Wolfbaby’ and ‘Silhouette‘ a few years ago, so it’s nice to have her back in the saddle with her brand new single ‘Overnight’. Displaying some seriously strong vocals, “The song focuses on this conflict that can occur in love relationships, this on / off, hold me / let me down, and in the video we are working on three different types of such scenarios”. Welcome back Karó, we’ve missed ya!
Hildur has released ‘Full Of You’. With help from Icelandic teenage dance troupe GRRRLS, Hildur conveys the story of a relationship running out of time. In a dark theatre, the teenage girls are dancing in a trance-like state, moving calmly to the solid beat, bathed in dim neon lights. Surrounded by the girls, Hildur fearlessly looks directly at the camera as she presents her ultimatum: “If you want my touch, if you want my love, I can’t wait no more”. The brilliant combination of dark, powerful music, Hildur’s gentle, bright voice and the girls’ badass aura creates a spellbinding coolness that’ll make you want to watch the video over and over again.
’Full Of You’ can be found on Hildur’s debut EP Heart to Heart, which is out now via Alda Music. You can watch the hypnotizing music video below:
Hafdís Huld’s ‘Take Me Dancing’ tells the lovely true story of a young Icelandic girl in the 1950’s who used to walk the 6 hours across a glacier in summer to dance with her friends, so remote was her home. Its a perfect excuse to produce a video featuring some beautiful Icelandic landscapes, a cute dog, and the song itself features typically sweet and poetic vocals.
Epic Rain invites you to take a peek into their harrowing dream world on their third album, with their most ambitious and dark sounding release.
The band itself is constantly evolving and so is their music which now could be categorized as a blend of 60’s psyche-electronic-cinematic, delivered by a variety of instruments and musicians more or less associated with the band.
