Who? 23-year-old artist Sólborg Guðbrandsdóttir from Keflavík in Iceland. She’s been working as a musician for a few years now, but today launches her new artist project SUNCITY – and the debut single ‘Naked’.
Why the name SUNCITY? It is a direct translation of her own name – Sol(sun) borg(city).
What’s the song like? An exciting debut that hints at having ambitions far beyond just Iceland. ‘Naked’ is a well-crafted pop tune with a bubbling synthpop undercurrent. All about “the perfectly imperfect sides that not
everyone deserves to see. When you are scared, insecure and vulnerable, thats when you are truly naked.”
Written by? Thomas Glashausser, Daniel Glashausser, Alma Guðmundsdóttir, Klara Ósk Elíasdóttir and Jóhannes Ágúst Sigurjónsson.
More from Sólborg? She competed in Söngvakeppnin 2018, as part of a duo, with the song ‘Ég Og þú‘.
