LISTEN: “Color Decay” by Júníus Meyvant

Finding “Color Decay” by Icelandic singer/songwriter Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson (aka Júníus Meyvant) is like finding a rare hidden treasure. In “Color Decay,” Júníus Meyvant mixes folk with a touch of funk in a rare but delightful tune. Júníus Meyvant’s music plays seamlessly alongside other artists including Ray Montagne, Bon Iver, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Júníus Meyvant describes himself in his Facebook bio with the following quote:

The sound of Júníus Meyvant is a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk pop with a familiar and soulful feel. The feeling you get from listening to Júníus equally as comfortable as resting under a thick wool blanket with a hot cup of cocoa in or even when one settles with an exotic beverage on a hot sandy beach far and away.
