Sólstafir release new single ‘Bláfjall’

Icelandic rockers SÓLSTAFIR have released a brand new single!

The new song, titled Bláfjall, is taken from the band’s upcoming album Berdreyminn which is scheduled to be released in May. Speaking about the new song, frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason says “the meaning of Bláfjall is blue – as in a black, black mountain, and it revolves around man’s battle against his own mind and those inner demons that often lead to self-destruction and harming one’s loved ones. I have myself struggled with alcoholism and it remains a never-ending battle and continuously walking further up a mountain in foggy darkness. But this is also about hope, because there is a way out, but you have to grab that rope when it comes swinging towards you and hold on to it as tight as you can. Everybody can end up lost on the black mountain, or Bláfjall in this case.”
