SXSW Song Of The Day: Solveig Matthildur – Dystopian Boy

I was already turned onto the dark synth-based sounds of Iceland’s Kælan Mikla this past November when they made a stop in Toronto for a Taste of Iceland/Reykjavik Calling-presented show alongside fellow Icelanders Solstafir, so they were already on my list of notable acts at this year’s edition of SXSW. And with the recent announcement that Kælan Mikla member Sólveig Matthildur would also be performing as a solo artist, one more name has been added to that list.

“Dystopian Boy,” the first single off of Matthildur’s latest album Constantly In Love, definitely shares some sonic DNA with Kælan Mikla while also bringing to mind the likes of Austra and Bjork. Check out the video for “Dystopian Boy” below.

Sólveig Matthildur plays Barracuda Backyard on Tuesday, March 17 at 7:30pm.
