Hafdis Huld Home JamSpreader Album Review

Sending over a big thank you to JamSpreader.com for their stellar review of Hafdis Huld’s “Home!” The website gave the record 4.5 stars, and praised Hafdis for her “crystalline vocals.” Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

“If you’ve ever dreamed of jammin’ with Bjork, Joni Mitchell, or Kate Bush, you’re in luck! Icelandic singer-songwriter Hafdis Huld has just released her third album (and first in four long years), “Home,” via OK! Good Records! “Home” starts out by fading in with “Sunrise,” a sublime love song that showcases the songstress’s crystalline vocals. Next up is “Queen Bee,” the albums first single, complete with an adorable music video (below). Hafdis paints a stunning picture of a magical land: “somewhere in between the trees where the grass is green, lives a man with his queen,” she croons, “somewhere in between the trees in a world that no one sees, he creates his own army of bees…”

Following “Queen Bee” is “Lucky,” one of the album’s stand-out track. The first US single, “Lucky” is an unusually cheery tune for the normally-mellow Huld, telling the story of admiration. “Home” is a tune sprinkled with ukulele accents that float dreamily over Hafdis’s assured vocals. “Wolf” embraces Hafdis’s quirky side, displaying a near tango-ish feel, before fading into “Treasures” and “Empty Eyes,” that see her go dark and brooding. “Little Light” is another adorable ukulele tune with a slow but steady tempo pick-up. “Little Light’s” peppy lyrics are a nice pause from the heartbreak of the last few tracks, with Hafdis chirping, “laughter fills the hall, ticking clock beside me…right behind the door is the place that I should be…”
