It seemed too good during the first listen. Thankfully, it wasn’t merely wishful thinking. “Wildflower” combines a number of features that draw us in and then hold our attention. Indie Obsessive has always enjoyed the sound of a choir in an Indie song. And we feel an alignment with the Folk Pop genre. We are partial to music from Iceland. “Wildflower” even has a touch of fellow Icelanders Of Monsters and Men, a band we look forward to seeing again.
“Wildflower” will be on the upcoming debut album from Lily of the Valley (LOTV). The album (“Ghosts”) is scheduled for release in the fall of 2015. The six members of the Reykjavík-based band are Mímir (vocals, melodica), Tinna (vocals), Logi Marr (guitar, vocals), Hrafnkell Már Einarsson (guitar, vocals), Leó Ingi (bass) and Guðmundur Thor (percussion).
