Laufey Lín Jónsdottír, more commonly known just as Laufey, is an Icelandic singer/songwriter and Cellist, who formerly performed as part of their Iceland Symphony Orchestra. She is currently based in Los Angeles, and is a graduate of Berklee College of Music. This Isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed the artist, and you can check those out here. I’ll be making my way through their individual singles, on the lead up to their recent EP, so keep an eye out for that. Today, however, I will be reviewing their single ‘Let You Break My Heart Again’ which was released on 13th August 2021.
‘Let You Break My Heart Again’ opens soft and slow, a melancholic string melody flowing into Laufey’s transcendent vocals. I already knew I liked their music, but seriously when you listen to it you’re dropped into a pure and beautiful dreamscape. She captures the vocal sincerity and beauty of sensational and timeless classics like Audrey Hepburn’s rendition of Moon River in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Laufey is truly spectacular and I’m super excited to spend the next few days revisiting their music on the lead up to their most recent release. I honestly was so captivated by their vocals I didn’t even really mention the instrumentals, and that’s a mistake because there’s a nice solid mix of things happening, all to create a rich backdrop to a compelling performance.
So that’s what I thought of Laufey’s single ‘Let You Break My Heart Again’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify.
