Alds Fjóla, a musician who has been polishing her talent since the age of sixteen, lives and works in the lovely village of Borgarfjörur eystra in East Iceland.
She’s been in the music industry for a while now, and after years of playing with different bands, she’s now taking the plunge and going solo.
Shadows (2020), the forthcoming first album from Alds Fjóla, brings a new and dramatic approach to pop-rock while exquisitely capturing the spirit of East Fjord Mist Melancholy. She faces her demons and finds solace in her music, drawing her listeners closer to her as a result.
The Icelandic superstar is back on the world scene with her brand new EP, Pipedreams. The album is heavily influenced by the grunge music of the 1990s, skillfully encapsulating the spirit of the era’s iconic bands that Fjóla holds dear.
Alds Fjóla, as a young person, was profoundly influenced by rock, grunge, and lighter music, and she spent a lot of time trying to decipher the depths of melancholy, sarcasm, and meaning hidden in the songs’ lyrics.
She spent her formative years immersed in the music of Skunk Anansie, Pearl Jam, No Doubt, and Alanis Morissette, all of whom she admired and wished she could sing about her feelings with the same intensity.
In her pursuit of self-expression, Alds Fjóla began collaborating with musician and sound engineer Stefán Örn Gunnlaugsson, who helped bring her songs to life. The dynamic duo worked tirelessly, transforming Fjóla’s raw emotions and ideas into the stunning tracks that grace her EP.
Pipedreams features the work of Stefán rn Gunnlaugsson on keyboards, synthesisers, bass guitar, and production, as well as that of Sigurdór Gumundsson/Skonrokk on mastering. Thanks to this fantastic group, Alds Fjóla will leave an indelible impression on the music industry.
With Alds Fjóla’s rising popularity, listeners may anticipate more heartfelt, emotionally resonant songs. This East Iceland musician is going to make an unforgettable impact on the world of pop-rock with her intensely personal lyrics and appealing sound.
