east of my youth
when we asked Herdís Stefánsdóttir & Thelma Marín Jónsdóttir - the illustrious duo behind East of My Youth - to come and join in our sessions it was a world away from their usual electropop landscape ("we usually have hundreds of channels with all kinds of sounds.")
for us, this was part of the excitement. taking artists out of their comfort zone. and what we found late afternoon on sat 26th august was something unique and special. taking away all the layers had actually not removed anything. but instead given us a new insight into the vocal sounds and lyrics of the duo, one beyond our wildest imagination.
you can appreciate that such a stripped-back performance was a totally new way to perform 'Broken Glass' but with all the motions and movements, you can feel Thelma being warped into, perhaps, a new zone for experiencing the band's own song.
timid but honest and totally commanding, perhaps "silence is my..."
"where I feel ecstatic...and everything around you becomes paradise, you know, I think it definitely lies around feeling, rather than a certain environment."
