Let me introduce Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir aka Lay Low.
Lay Low released a beautiful album last year ‘Brostinn strengur’ where she has supplied the music to words written by well known Icelandic female poets.
A very cool idea, and maybe one to repeat on her next album.
Again, as I have often before, I'm tempted to ask "how come there is so much talent in Iceland?".
Horfið 18, November 2011 - Lay Low playing one of the songs from her brand new album "Brostinn Strengur" in a small and cozy church in Reykjavík.
This is the title track, not sure but maybe from the launch?

Here's one from some time back, not on this album of course but you may even remember it.

Back to the new album for the last track.
This is just the audio, not much of a video, but the song is so good you have to hear it.
Who cares that we don't know Icelandic?
