Special-K is an Icelandic avant-garde musician and artist. Her debut album I Thought I’d Be More Famous by Now is a visual album where every song has its own music video. She combines different elements like pop culture, fashion, poetry and whimsical music to create a universe of her own. A Universe made out of post-internet aesthetics, cheekily honest lyrics and all kinds of quirky sounds and instruments. The music (which is all written, recorded and produced by herself) is a mixture of rawness and sophistication, combining complex synth arrangements with playful recorder flute solos and the like. The videos were made in collaboration with many different artists and show this weird and innocent looking, slightly alien creature in diverse circumstances. When playing live she has the videos playing on a big screen behind her with karaoke lyrics. The album is a tribute to the bittersweet melancholy of the everyday life of a millenial. Themes like unfulfilled dreams of fame and glory, love and boredom in the age of tinder and impostor syndrome are to be found in her songs – which are at the same time one hundred percent sincere and one hundred percent ironic.
