You'd hardly expect this folksy, sometimes on the edge of latin, pop to be born of Iceland. But Emiliana Torrini makes her break after a writing a song or two for others and jumping on a few odd soundtracks with Me and Armini.
"A diva/chanteuse somewhere between the bad-girl anti-heroics of Lily Allen and the Sunday morning adulthood of Norah Jones, Emiliana Torrini sings with the inquisitiveness of fellow Icelander Björk. On Me and Armini, Torrini’s sixth album (third international), her songs are set into glittering poptronics by collaborator Dan Carey, with whom Torrini once co-wrote and co-produced songs for Kylie Minogue. The two aren’t afraid to aim for absolute hookiness."
