What a treat to wake up in the morning and find a track like this in our SoundCloud feed! Júníus Meyvant was one of many artists that made Iceland Airwaves such a delight for us last year, and he’s got a mind to stay in our good graces through 2016. All on the strength of tunes like this and what will surely be an earthshaking debut album that he has scheduled for release on July 8th. The hashtag on the SoundCloud page for this song may say “Folk & Singer-Songwriter,” but what I hear is pure blue-eyed soul recorded with an admirable eye for detail and that perfect combination of rough and smooth that is Meyvant’s vocal performance. I have no idea what this “neon experience” is he’s singing about, but he makes it sound so inviting, doesn’t he?
