There is something effervescent about this track, something to the lack of low-end except for the one tabla boom at the beginning of each bar. So the bed is made, and along with the sparkling plucked strings we have a serene, chesty baritone, softly weaving around in the shuffle of acoustic notes.
Freyr Flodgren, with his new single Over My Head, gives us a stunning folk debut, a fluttering acoustic bird of a song with rare and precious plumage. It is a dream out loud, and a personal meditation that will stay with you, bringing a simple message of peace and acceptance.
Freyr Flodgren is a 24 year old Icelandic/Swedish singer-songwriter living in Sweden.
