New Music: Sølv - Codeine

Back with some black liquid electronic gold comes Sølv, the singer who by all clues should be from Scandinavia, but isn’t. Following her debut EP from 2016 Sølv now begins a drip feed of new material with the exquisite chill-pop of Codeine. This isn’t a song that screams at you, instead it slides starkly into your ears, intent on slow-burning skeletal seduction. A song of obsession and addiction and not having “a care when we’re young,” Codeine sounds sinister, shadowy and claustrophobic, not because there’s huge layers of sound pressing down on you, but the opposite – it’s tightening grip is due to the minimalism of it all.
