Sunna Margrét is an artist after my own heart. Her new single ‘Chocolate’ declares “There’s no need to worry, like chocolate and cheese, my reasons are solid”. Me too girl, me too. Whilst not including two of my favourite foods in a song lyric, Sunna is creating left-field pop that fans of Massive Attack, Jenny Hval and Bjork will all enjoy. The single ‘Chocolate’ starts out like a weird trip-hop spoken word fever dream before odd synths take over. It is an anti-pop song full of quirky ideas but Sunna’s voice and attention to detail keep you drawn in. On first listen, I thought “hmm” then I replayed to confirm I liked it and like turned to adored the third time around.
Sunna Margrét used to be in a band called Bloodgroup which is an Icelandic electro-pop ensemble but has since gone solo. She received the Kraumur Award – Iceland’s version of the Mercury Prize Award – following her 2019 release ‘Art of History’. Her penchant for chopping up weird lofi sounds and allowing her smooth captivating voice to glide over the top hasn’t diminished 4 years later.
