Home is both the title and the central theme of Hafdis Huld’s brand new album. Home for Hafdis is an old house in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains just outside Reykjavik. With the remarkable Icelandic landscape as a constant backdrop, Hafdis wrote and recorded this album at home with her partner Alisdair. The songs bring everyday detail into sharp focus, perfectly illustrated on the track Queen Bee, which was written as a thank you note for her neighbour who had given her a dog. Stripped back and mainly centered around acoustic guitar, piano and voice, it’s the perfect foil for Hafdis’s pure vocals. Like Iceland itself, its beauty lies in the juxtaposition of the simple with the extraordinary.
