Patty Crash shares her Top 5 Favourite Icelandic Artists
Icelandic born / Philadelphia based artist PATTY CRASH has just released her latest single ‘Come Around’, which includes a seriously fine collab with The Roots.
This newest tune follows on from her debut release ‘Pictures’ last year, and further establishes Crash’s musical prowess in amongst the already bursting resume, despite being crazy under the radar as a solo artist.
The production in ‘Come Around’ features smooth, slow-paced electronic beats infused with with some retro, synthed-up RnB vibes that gel perfectly around the vocals. These intense, digital tones are a perfect complement to the quirkiness of Patty‘s effected voice, offering a bold, upbeat juxtaposition to the song’s incredibly strong lyrics.
With a debut EP on the horizon, there is a tonne of new music on its way with a whirlwind of musical influences. Boring down to her own cultural roots, Patty Crash shared with us her Top 5 Favourite Icelandic Artists.
You can check out ‘Come Around’ below, and see how it compares to some of her home grown inspirations.
#1 Salin hans Jóns míns.
Growing up in Iceland in the 90’s this band was the soundtrack to my pre-teen years when I wasn’t listening to Tupac.
Duh, obvi! I love K.U.K.L. One of the first bands she joined in Iceland, their music and videos are weird af and I like that.
#3 Sigur Rós.
My older sister’s name is Sigurós and when she sold her house in Iceland the drummer bought her house in cash. I love their music but have no idea what the hell they are saying?
# 4 Sugar Cubes.
So many classic Icelandic tunes! Stole this CD from my mom, shhhhh!
#5 Emmssjé Gauti.
Icelandic girls like trap music too 🤷🏼♀️
