Magical Iceland indie folk with Sóley.

Iceland multi-instrumentalist will perform at club “Loftas” (Vilnius) on 26th May. Sóley skillfully masters the piano, guitar and many other musical instruments, easily solves the mystery of how to thrill the deepest human soul strings. The artist says about her music: “A beat is laid out, hesitantly moving along at first, then careering, taking off; soon sepia-toned clouds of piano gather overhead, shimmering, turning darker and richer, and then Sóley raises her voice – a voice that, until five years ago, she didn’t even consider a proper “singing voice”.”
