Nancydeath75 My Father Taught Me How To Cry is just begging to be played in some artistic movie, preferably in black and white
it's reminiscent of some classical requiem. I adore this song. Favorite track: My Father Taught Me How to Cry.

nofatclips 3rd listen: thick and dark, packed with goodness; it really put Sólveig Matthildur between those few artists I follow closely!

2nd listen: Distancing myself from my expectations, I can very much more appreciate this!

1st listen: Very good, perhaps not what I was expecting after listening to the singles. Favorite track: Dystopian Boy.

the-untangled-man solo project of a members of Kaelan Mikla. it is a different approach from the original group of Solveig Matthildur. However, it completes the ambience drawn. In a different but in a very interesting way. Melancholy is present, with obvious influences (CURE, DCD, BJörk in a darker version ...).
in the end, an album that deserves a listening constantly in love Favorite track: The End.

about

Constantly in Love, the second record from Kælan Mikla keyboardist and back-up singer Sólveig Matthildur, is an emotional, poetic, and breathtaking creation. From the light-hearted but dead serious first single and video (“Dystopian Boy”), to the medieval symmetry of the album’s construction (spoiler: it’s a massive envelope poem), Sólveig has, quite possibly, written album for the ages.

Channeling influences as varied as trip-hop pioneers Portishead, to black metal band Urfaust, to French post-punk chanteuse Hante, Sólveig’s sophomore album is one part darkwave, one part spoken art-poetry jams, and one part electronic downtempo compositions. Rolling Stone’s David Fricke likely put it best: after seeing Sólveig live, he called her “a tablet-age reincarnation of the post–Velvet Underground Nico.”

Toronto-based Artoffact Records will release Constantly in Love on vinyl, CD, and digital format on April 19th, 2019. The album features guest appearances from Drab Majesty’s Deb Demure, post-punk solo artist Some Ember, and the digital version includes a bonus track remixed by Hante. The album’s release party will be in Iceland at Sónar Reykjavik, April 25th-27th.

"A melancholic ache verging on nostalgia for the uncertain sadness of youth."
-Kelsey Chapstick, Revolver Mag
