Iceland's Jofrieur Akadottir may only be 25, but the artist has already made her name known in the country's music scene. She even captured the attention of Icelandic icon Bjork, who named Akadottir as an influence in an interview with the Guardian. Akadottir played indie folk with her twin sister in the duo Pascal Pinon, performed in the electronic duo Samaris, and joined the musical collective GANGLY all before starting her own solo project, JFDR. In JFDR, Akadottir utilizes her experience as a multi-instrumentalist to create expansive and ambient soundscapes.
