Stína Ágústsdóttir brings us a new album in 2022. It contains songs that reflect the many sides of a human being, both the pretty and the ugly, and that it’s ok to be a mess and need help. Drown to Die a Little demands your attention and rewards you in return. It’s a sensual and soulful work of jazz fusion with a good portion of Scandinavian elegance.

Ágústsdóttir is considered one of Iceland’s best jazz artists and nowadays she’s just as established in Sweden. She is known for her energetic live performances, not only in Scandinavia, but also in her previous home of Montréal. She has been nominated for the Icelandic music prize a few times, both for her album Jazz á íslensku (Jazz in Icelandic, 2017) and for The Whale (2021).

"In 2016 I got seriously ill and needed to put my life on hold. I managed to get back on my feet, with the help of family and friends, and the music on the record is about this journey from darkness towards light...

I’ve worked with guitarist and songwriter Mikael Máni Ásmundsson on two albums before and we continued the collaboration on this album. He helped me finish some of the songs and even wrote new music to some of the lyrics I had. I reached out to a couple of other songwriters for collaboration, Maïa Davies and Jan Alexander...we recorded at the legendary Sigur Rós studio, Sundlaugin, with the best band ever!: Henrik Linder on bass (Dirty Loops), Mikael Máni on guitar, Magnús Jóhann Ragnarsson on keys, Magnús Trygvason Elíassen on drums and Albert Finnbogason helped produce and mixed the album. We also had a string quartet and harp on a couple of tunes." --Ágústsdóttir
