JFDR rises from the ashes of love with “Taking A Part Of Me”

“Taking A Part Of Me” is taken from JFDR‘s forthcoming sophomore album, due out next year.

Since the release of her bewitching album Brazil back in 2017, JFDR appeared amongst others on Max Sokolinski‘s debut track “The Only One” and, more recently, on Helsinki-based electro-pop trio Aves‘ comeback track “Gem of The Ocean“. The Icelandic songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, whose real name is Jófríður Ákadóttir, has now returned in solo with “Taking a Part of Me”, the mesmerising yet melancholic first single taken from her forthcoming sophomore album. As usual, JFDR‘s new track sounds intricate and intimate as the artist combines crispy and delicate electronic textures with mermaidy vocal layers. About the track, she detailed:

This song is about turning the misery to its flip side, the negative space, the desired destination, the contrast, moon to sun, low to high, soft to hard, interior to exterior, passive to active, valley to hill, still water to mountain, sleep to wake.

It also comes with a haunting video which was directed by rising Australian director Emily Avila. Watch below.
