Iceland’s JFDR released debut LP & new video, opening for Floating Points tonight at Brooklyn Steel
Though only 22, Jófríður Ákadóttir has been a part of Iceland's music scene for nearly a decade, with such groups as Samaris, Pascal Pinon, and Gangly. (Bjork is a fan.) She's currently making music under the name JFDR, having released the beautiful album Brazil in March. The record finds her spinning haunting melodies via delicate, skittering arrangements and ethereal harmonies. We've got the premiere of the video for single "Destiny Is Upon Us," directed by Michael Odmark, which finds Ákadóttir racing amongst the elements. Watch that and listen to the whole album, below.
Ákadóttir is in NYC currently and JFDR will be opening for Floating Points tonight at Brooklyn Steel (the venue's first non-LCD Soundsystem show). Okay Kaya is on the bill as well and tickets are still available.
