‘Bee Xlaura’

Premiered on the Gorilla Vs. Bear music blog last week, ‘Bee Xlaura’ is the first taste of a series of double A-side 7″ singles that Kría Brekkan intends to release later in the year, and a hint of what’s to come in the next part of the “journey”, as she described it in our recent interview [here]. Recorded in early 2007 with Múm collaborator and member of Icelandic band Slowblow, Orri Jónsson, ‘Bee Xlaura’ is a beautiful stripped-down piano track that’s (dare we say it) accessible in a way that none of Kría’s previous releases have been. The first listen was three minutes of bated breath waiting for the seemingly inevitable moment that schizophrenic daggers of electronic distortion would engulf her, but that moment never came. What we’re left with is perhaps the purest essence of what makes Kría Brekkan so utterly captivating that we’ve heard to date. We can’t wait to hear the rest. MP3 after the jump.
