Heidrunna - 'Daydreamer’

  • 2 min read

With a palpable blend of euphoric eclecticism, Nordic electro-pop riser Heidrunna unwinds in her forthcoming release, the slow-moving ‘Daydreamer’.

A sentimental delight which follows Heidrunna as she takes a trip down memory lane, reminiscing long-lost romance and a yearn for lust, the new single diverts from the Icelandic singer’s instantly recogniseable and elated soundscapes for a heavenly detour that catches the views of Heidrunna’s transcending state of unconsciousness.

Taken from her upcoming debut album, 'Melodramatic', Heidrunna explains: “Daydreamer is one of my favourite songs that I’ve written so far. It came about as I was walking home on a crisp sunny day, I started humming this melody with the lyric ‘daydreamer’ and it made me feel incredible. So good that when I came home I went straight to the piano and started to play it… it felt so special and natural, like something was in the air."

"It’s a love song about meeting somebody and having a romance that I’m sure many people can relate to – that feeling of having some fun with somebody and wanting to do that all over again… and of course like most of my songs, it has a bit of a sad ending.”

Onboard for production is Liam Howe, whose portfolio embraces the likes of Lana Del Rey, MARINA, FKA twigs and Ellie Goulding. With 'Melodramatic', he and Heidrunna have rewritten the guidebook, conjuring up the kind of impenetrably-authentic ‘80s backdrop that you’d be hard pushed to pick out in a line-up of the finest electronic albums of an era it presumably seeks to emulate and acknowledge in equal measure.

Reminiscent of artists such as Nina Persson, Vanessa Paradis and Charlotte Gainsburg, Heidrunna’s refreshing palette and nuanced vocal displays are not to go amiss. With personal influences paying tribute to post-punk ‘80s icons including Blondie, pioneering synth-based techno-crafters, Kraftwerk and Giorgio Moroder, alongside the contrasting style and romanticism of French artists Serge Gainsburg, Daft Punk and Air alike.
