What’s this? This right here is the brand-new single from Icelandic artist Elísabet. ‘Heart Beats’.
What’s it like? On it, she’s merged 80’s-esque synthpop to another genre from that era – epic rock balladry. And when we say epic, we mean it – ‘Heart Beats’ clocks in at just under five whole lush minutes. It even includes a fade-out. So retro-chic.
Written by? Elísabet herself, along with Zoe-Ruth Erwin.
More from Elísabet? Cast your mind back to March 2016 and you may well remember her song and performance from the Söngvakeppnin final!
