My oh My
A mesmerizing folk-pop fusion.
Icelandic musical creative, Brynja, is a singer and songwriter who knows folk music like the back of her hand. With a background in acoustic folk music, the artist meshes her “dreamy vocals and honest lyrics with elements of R&B, pop, and Nordic folk.” This creates a distinctive sound that fits into pop while standing apart from it. In her early songwriting days, Brynja found inspiration in artists like Emiliana Torrini, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Nick Drake, Björk, and Sigurrós. Not long afterward, she began taking influence from R&B artists like Solange, Frank Ocean, and Lauryn Hill. In addition to her work as a solo artist, Brynja is also part of a musical collective known as European Hype. All of her work is available on Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud. One of Brynja’s recent drops is the pop single “My Oh My.” The song also has an accompanying lyric video.
An uplifting blend of pop and R&B, “My Oh My” remains infectious and truly unique. At the same time, it promises emotional responses with a powerful understanding. Lyrics like “I can’t really make my mind up now / Cause I am floating and I won’t touch ground” and “I try to adapt to / A new state of mind / My head’s underwater /My path out of sight” will instantly captivate you. Thanks to the artist’s dreamy vocals, we now have a tough-love sort of situation in which we can see ourselves in Brynja’s situation. With a rich aesthetic and just the right amount of folk-pop elements, she gifts us a compelling genre fusion single you don’t want to miss. So, press play and experience Brynja’s “My Oh My” to learn how to adapt.
