Hafdis Huld’s Synchronised Swimmers Review On Babysue

Babysue reviews another one of OK! Good’s artists. This time it’s Hafdis Huld’s Synchronised Swimmers. Babysue is a blog that specializes in music reviews, original comics and poems, and short stories.

“When we think of Iceland we usually think of artsy abstract musical artists. As a result, we were rather surprised to find that Iceland’s Hafdis Huld is a pure pop singer whose music could easily appeal to millions and millions of listeners. Huld released her first album (Dirty Paper Cup) in 2006 and since that time has become very successful in her native country. Now with the release of Synchronized Swimmers she is hoping to transfer some of that success to other parts of the world. Folks will undoubtedly be inclined to compare Hafdis to Deborah Harry (Blondie)…simply because both are very beautiful thin platinum blond women. But that’s where the similarities end, as Hafdis is playing to a much more mature crowd than Harry. Her songs are smart and intricate and her vocals very focused and passionate. While we admit this album is a bit more commercial than we normally like…we have to admit that when things sound this good, who cares? Clever radio- and download-friendly cuts include “Action Man,” “Boys & Perfume,” “Robot Robot,” and “Winter Sun.”
