With three solo LPs under her belt, Icelandic musician sóley, is back with Mother Melancholia. This new concept album sees sóley moving away from indie-pop to create the soundtrack to the end of the world as we know it. Using an accordion to begin writing many of the songs, she was able to experiment with a whole new range of new and exciting sounds. The album chronicles the end of the world culminating with Earth’s final moments. Mother Melancholia is finds the artist confidently exploring new sonic territory with the aim of expressing the real person inside of her. The music might be shrouded in darkness, but this is a move that fills her with joy and light.
