SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Sóley, Festsaal Kreuzberg, 9pm
There must be something in the water in those Nordic countries, because there is a seemingly never-ending stream of music coming out of them, and Icelandic singer Sóley Stefánsdóttir is certainly no exception. Having first toured the world in indie-folk band Seabear, it wasn’t long before she realized her own star power and embarked on a solo career.
To date, the singer-songwriter and pianist has two albums under her belt, the most recent of which is 2011′s We Sink. On it, it’s easier to notice the influences from Seabear, which are most definitely carried over into Sóley’s solo work, but she still retains her own delicate and distinct flair. In the meantime, stay tuned for a third full-length, due out sometime in the not-too-distant future. Natalye Childress
