Album Review: Not Your Type by Hera

Album Name: ot Your Type
Artist: Hera
Year/Label: 2003 / Ski Fan

Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Hera comes from Iceland and makes sparkly indiepop. Her latest record is sung in English and shows her talent for writing individual songs.

“Naughts and Crosses” is a sweet, folk-flavoured tune. Hera’s singing is strong here.

“4Bidden Fruit” is a melancholy song about a young girl’s death. Hera sings it with great compassion.

“Itchy Palms” echoes early Jewel in its simple setting and delicacy.

“Sleepyhead” is a beautiful song with quirky, alluring lyrics.

“Suffer from You” has Hera singing of a troubled relationship in an insightful way.

“Not Your Type” will appeal to many despite the title.
