Icelandic Faeries

We were listening on the ipad to a Radio 4 Extra programme about Icelandic faeries. How musically do Icelanders speak English! And they sound positively sing-songy when talking about their ‘Spesshal’ faerie friends.

So I’ve created a mash-up: mixed Icelandic voices inside some of Hazels faerie folk and plunged them earthwards into Sigur Ros’s plangent groundswell of sweet melancholy.
