Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Iceland’s Hera Hjartadottir has been making her music for a while and it shows.

The relaxed vibe and impassioned jazzy stylings of “Feathers in a Bag” are instantly appealing. It’s more like Rickie Lee Jones than other Icelandic singers one could mention.

“Chocolate” is a sweet little ode to just that, Hera’s singing is infectious.

She dedicates a song to her guitar and sings of anger intriguingly. Hera is one to seek out, and her new album is a treat. Do play this.
