(Photo by Dean Wallflower) Icelandic artist Sólveig Matthildur has released a new single, “Venus”, available right now on all streaming platforms. You can check it below, and it was also added to our playlist on Spotify.
Based in Reykjavik, Iceland, Sólveig Matthildur is one of the founders of the post-punk band Kælan Mikla and also runs the record label Hið myrka man. In 2015 she moved to Berlin where she started a solo project under her own name working primarily with synthesizers, strings and voices circling around 20 hz sine waves that eventually start beating with your heart.
She has previously released two full-length albums on Artoffact Records. In 2020, Sólveig has used the pandemic downtime to release a series of singles on streaming platforms, and the new single “Venus” marks the fourth to be released this year.
The series of singles will culminate in 2021 with the release of Sólveig’s third full-length.
