Words: Saam Das
Whenever I hear that Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi is involved in a project, I'm pretty much immediately interested. He's teamed up with Joel Thibodeau, aka Death Vessel, on 'Ilsa Drown' - the first taste of Thibodeau's new album, 'Island Intervals', out in February through Sub Pop. Listen to the entrancing folk of 'Ilsa Drown' below.
The track is quite reminiscent of Jonsi's own percussive solo work, perhaps largely due to the presence of long--time collaborator Alex Somers, who has produced 'Island Intervals'. The combined vocals also evoke Of Monsters And Men, and the result is both invigorating and calming.
