Icelandic synth pop duo East of My Youth return with ‘Go Home’. Emerging out of oozing, synth soundscapes singer Thelma Marín Jónsdóttir’s rich vocal compliments the musicality perfectly. Herdís Stefánsdóttir’s composition takes a backseat to begin with, but soon grows to include bass and off kilter drum beats. The result is something which is experimental, unusual, but not off putting.

Talking about the track, Herdís explains “I was sitting in the studio and playing around on my MicroKorg synth, listening to A$AP Rocky. The song came really easily. We were in such a good mood the we went downtown and Thelma bought herself new shoes and then we went back to the studio and had some wine and danced.”
