Pascal Pinon – Þerney (One Thing)
Pascal Pinon are Icelandic twins Jófríður and Ásthildur. If it’s not crazy enough how much quality music comes out of Iceland, Pascal Pinon arrive at a time when the Of Monsters And Men phase is just wearing off. And they do indeed have a similar sound to their predecessors, most notably I can’t help but make the connection to Sigur Rós. Þerney (One Thing) is a song about tragedy, and the fact that it only takes “one thing” for everything to go wrong. Although you might not know it the way the two sing in perfect harmony; their voices nearly indistinguishable from each other. Pascal Pinon have all the right moves to be the next big act out of Iceland — I’d expect an exciting 2013 for this dreamfolk duo.
