Luxembourg-Icelandic singer Thorunn has launched a new musical project, with a release party next Tuesday at Rockhal.
Teaming up with local musicians Jeff Herr, Julian Lang and Johannes Still, Thorunn’s latest music venture goes under the name When ‘Airy Met Fairy.
The moniker reflects a new more restrained style from the singer, a folksy-electronic mix and understated sound that is accessible and probably reflects the Thorunn’s Icelandic roots more than her previous determinedly commercial songs.
Indeed, her more restrained vocals appear to have acquired an Icelandic edge, which also makes the new music more interesting and exotic.
The group launched its debut album The Breach at a showcase organized by Music and Resources Rockhal. The album features a dozen songs written by Thorunn and is well worth investigating.
