Icelandic popster Glowie is on the up with her debut EP 'Where I Belong'

Iceland has provided us with all kinds of delights, Dear Reader. But enough about their extensive range of frozen potato products (lol, etc - Dad Jokes Ed). The country which is named after the high street retailer is, additionally, Quite Good At 'The Music'.

21 year old Icelandic native Sara Pétursdóttir, better known as the less accent-tastic Glowie, has just dropped her debut EP.

It's called 'Where I Belong' and has arrived via 'Columbia Records'. Featuring the previously revealed 'Body' and Cruel', it's not shy of a banger - we'd recommend the last track, 'I'm Good', 'FYI'.

Speaking about the EP, Glowie explains:

“The last two years have been an emotional rollercoaster for me. It has been a time of experimenting with the music, trying different things and also bringing back stories from my childhood into the music. Music has always been such a big part of my life, it was always something I’d reach out to when I needed comfort and encouragement, especially in my teenage years. So I wanna do the same for others with my music, I want people to feel comfort, empowerment and love from my music. The 5 songs on this EP are all very different but they all represent something that I’ve experienced before, something that I stand for and feel very passionate about. So I’m really excited to hear how these songs will make people feel, because I bet it’s gonna be different for each person”.

You can stream 'the full thing' below. Be sure to let Glowie know how it makes you feel, too. She's excited.

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
