Watch this Breathtaking SÓLVEIG MATTHILDUR “Utopian Girl” Video

A few weeks ago I found Sólveig Matthildur (member of Kælan Mikla), and my life has been enriched with her dreamy melodies and addictive beats ever since. Artoffact Records is releasing a new album from this Icelandic queen on April 19th, 2019 entitled Constantly In Love, and today we’re very excited to share one of the tracks off of it in the form of her video for “Utopian Girl.” As soon as you hit play on this, you’ll know why this album is already a contender for our darkwave/electronic album of the year. It’s the kind of music that lets you float away to happier times in your mind. You can pick up the pre-order for Constantly in Love right here, and for now watch this gorgeous video for “Utopian Girl” below…

The song Utopian Girl is about limitation of your own dreams. Not allowing yourself to hope and therefore getting stuck in a loop of self-doubt. This video is the first part of three videos for songs on my upcoming album Constantly in Love


I am working with my friends on the videos and the artistic concepts behind the album, Dean Kemball and Kinnat Sóley. 


I have a hard time explaining to other people and myself how and why and what is happening in my mind. I had to write a whole album to understand what was going on in my mind. I recently I realized that most of the songs on my upcoming album “Constantly in Love” are about how I limit myself good things, flee everything that could somehow make myself happier. It’s some kind of deep psychological self-harm.
