Jóhanna Seljan debuted her new single Strangelove and it is dense with a forest full of beats that you can’t help but explore. It doesn’t fail to captivate you her delicate yet powerful voice that blends beautifully with the intricate production. The song is a total standout from her other singles because it creates a unique sonic experience. It is somehow both otherworldly and deeply emotional.
Right from the opening notes, Strangeloe is a number that defies categorization. She blends electronic and organic instrumentals, creating a dreamlike soundscape that draws her listeners in. Seljan’s voice adds so much value along with the instrumentals, creating a sense of longing and yearning that is both palpable and poignant. It is a masterpiece in terms of production quality. The song shimmers and sparkles with a synth electronic undercurrent that travels to your feet and will have you dancing in no time. She speaks of a love where she asks her partner to stay away from her and then goes on to beg her partner to stay.
A series that deals with all this and more is Awkward, it was set in a school. Imagine telling your best friend you got back together with your ex-boyfriend? She would kill and that happens a lot in over 5 seasons. I can totally imagine this song as Jenna tells Tammy this exact same news. Much like the series Jóhanna Seljan has filled the single with so much character that there is no point boxing it within one genre. You must check out this boundary-breaking singer- songwriter now!
