Yaëll and Brynja met while performing on the streets of Den Haag. A year later, after having moved back to Iceland, Brynja was looking for a male vocalist for one of her tracks and Yaëll came to mind.
She decided to reach out and ask if he’d be interested. Yaëll jumped on a plane to Iceland, they made it through some hurdles including COVID positive tests but finally, they were in the studio under the guidance of producer and musician Baldur Hjörleifsson.
As they were finishing up the song in question and preparing to leave the studio a simple guitar melody sparked a moment of creativity. In a matter of minutes they already had the building blocks of a brand new song.
“Mildly Insane” is the type of track that gets heads bumping right from the get-go. Yaëll‘s velvety, smooth vocals glide over the psychedelic instrumentation reminiscent of bygone eras of rock. Brynja joins in, making the tune an anthem with her catchy phrase “Go and get it and live it up, it don‘t matter you if mess it up“. In a lively back and forth the duo continues, Yaëll‘s smooth-talking voice juxtaposed with Brynja‘s sassy tone. The song is bookended with a blazing guitar solo channeling a sense of bliss.
Accompanying the song is a music video, vintage and vibrant that matches the songs vibe perfectly. The scenery simple and visually pleasing; an orange vintage car parked by the ocean giving contrast to the cold harsh nature of Iceland. The trio performing in and around it, casual and cool while maintaining a playful energy. Get ready to be taken to a place where cars look sexy and guitar solos are hot.
A message of acceptance is portrayed in the song of the pretty mess we‘re all in. So many of us aim to live life without messing up, forgetting that life‘s greatest lessons are usually learned through our worst mistakes – so go live it up!
All three of them have so much more coming so make sure to follow them on their socials!
