Sóley Stefánsdóttir is Icelandic songwriter, musician, singer. She is a member of the indie-collective music group Seabear. In 2010 she released her debut EP Theater Island which was followed by her first full-length album We Sink. 
Sóley''s music carries Icelandic mark of exoticism combined with her ethereal vocal, creative instrumentation and dreamy melodic lines...

...which corresponds with the fact that the main inspiration for We Sink were ...her dreams. 
But be aware,as they were seldom sweet dreams. The songs create a dark an dreadful atmosphere filled with an anxiety. The world that the artist is animating with her music invites us to enter into a mood of horror film or a childhood nightmare. The lyrics and the music create a kind of unique contradictory experience where beauty is at the same time distressing.

The reason earning her a comparison to Tim Burton in the world of sound.
