Album artwork for Welcome by Daoi Freyr

Icelandic visionary Daði Freyr released his ‘Welcome’ EP digitally in 2021. It is now available on vinyl for the first time, with two remixes by Hot Chip and Chromeo. It includes the infectious Eurovision groove ‘Think About Things’ and its equally uplifting successor ‘10 years’. While the bangers you already know and love are on the tracklist including the global viral phenomenon smash hit ‘Think About Things’ and equally uplifting successor ‘10 years’, the rest of the EP shows Daði Freyr’s versatility as the master of sonically nuanced pop music. ‘Clear My Head’ is a nocturnal slice of electronica, layered with strings to lend not only atmosphere, but an emotional vulnerability that catches you off guard. The second of the two brand new tracks, ‘Somebody Else Now’, follows cinematic highs and lows with bombastic choruses and a tropical rhythm - throwing in a few powerful guitar riffs for good measure - which gives way to rousing strings and gentle piano, offering a sincerity to Daði Freyr’s sound that we’ve never heard before. Daði Freyr put ‘Welcome’ together as an introduction to his music for new listeners: “I wanted to give a taste of what I do before I dive into making a full-length debut LP. I like making music that’s fun to make, so this is the result of that. Also - a Chromeo remix, how crazy is that?!?”
