Melting catchy scandi vibes with a powerful message, Hildur does not only use her electro pop to get people bumping their heads. She writes songs that also carry an important message of female empowerment, self courage and being true to one’s self. Hildur has been around the block in the Icelandic music scene for a while with other acts but premiered her solo material on Sónar Reykjavík 2016. A year later she had won Pop Song of the Year and was nominated as a Newcomer of the Year at the Icelandic Music Awards.
Following a sexist backlash she got after winning the awards she’s used that to drive to empower women in the music industry, now most recently with throwing female-only songwriting workshops in Iceland and being a part of the Keychange initiative.
Hildur released her first EP, Heart to Heart in 2017 and is currently releasing singles of her next EP, Intuition, that will be out early 2019. Her recent single Picture Perfect got heavily playlisted on Spotify and has been sparking a buzz around Hildur’s next releases.
