Former member of Gus Gus, Icelandic-based, enchanting singer/songwriter Hafdis Huld, premieres with FM the ideal video for her brand new single ‘Take Me Dancing’ (out July 14th). The sweetly convincing number – about life and the beauty in the little things – is taken from her new album ‘Dare to Dream Small’ (released on 28th July via Proper Distribution).
Hafdis explains: “Social media can make us feel inadequate, and there is a generation now growing up with the constant pressure to think bigger, get richer, become thinner, and have a more fabulous life. I think it is important to remember that life is not a competition. If you have enough then you should allow yourself to be happy. It´s ok to dream small”.
“The stunning video recreates a true story of an Icelandic girl in the 1950s who lived in a remote part of Iceland´s Westfjords that could only be reached by boat or over a glacier. On special occasions she would make a 6 hour walk over the glacier to meet up with other youngsters to have a dance and then walk back home by herself in the bright summer night…”
‘Dare to Dream Small’ co-writers include Boo Hewerdine, Nik Kershaw, Tim Gordine, Calum MacColl and Alisdair Wright (who also produced the album).
