JFDR – Spectator [Video]

Museum” is a new start for Icelandic singer/songwriter JFDR and the album’s soaring second single “Spectator” feels indeed as if the artist had found a new voice. The intimacy, the beauty of her vocals, and the intricate instrumentation are all still there, but the music now radiates a confident and consistent sonic vision.

She says:

“‘Spectator’ is an anthem for the codependent, a lullaby for the ones slightly codependent and for those who have never felt it; a mirror into the raw thought process of someone deep in the trenches of it.

She also comments on the gorgeous video:

“The video was made with my good friend Timothee Lambrecq, and the unmissable support from my husband Josh Wilkinson and old bandmate Áslaug Magnúsdóttir. The clouds represent thoughts, and getting swallowed by a big cloud is symbolic of the thoughts that can overtake you, when you lose your ground. I also wanted to reference the album and its artwork that centers around a statue, representing energy frozen in time. I truly hope this song makes someone feel seen. It can take a long time to learn to navigate big emotions, whether they’re your own or others. I was feeling it at the time.”
