Stína Ágústsdóttir brings us a new album in 2022. It contains songs that reflect the many sides of a human being, both the pretty and the ugly, and that it’s ok to be a mess and need help. Drown to Die a Little demands your attention and it rewards you in return. It’s a sensual and a soulful jazz fusion with a good portion of Scandiavian elegance.
Stína Ágústsdóttir is considered one of Iceland’s best jazz artists and
nowadays she’s just as established in Sweden. She is known for her energetic live performances, not only in Scandinavia, but also in her previous home of Montreal. She has been nominated for the Icelandic music prize a few times, both for her album, Jazz á íslensku (Jazz in Icelandic, 2017) and for The Whale (2021).
