Icelandic born Disa Jakobs is a singer and songwriter who left Reykjavik, Iceland to live in Copenhagen. Disa’s music is about challenging and expanding the boundaries of modern pop music, and she finds inspiration in the wild, Scandinavian nature but also by the likes of fellow contemporary and alternative artists such as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Brian Eno and Fever Ray. Disa’s Music shares the qualities of her native country. It is cold yet compelling and you always sense an underlying risk of eruption.
Disa debuted in spring 2013 with the single “Sun” that premiered on the lifestyle magazine Nowness.com. Subsequently, it created a lot of blog attention, with more than 10K views of the dark and beautiful video. The single was well received by the Danish press as well describing Disa’s vocals as “unearthly” and “angelic”.
With Disa’s symphonic and picturesque compositions, she is the latest demonstration of Iceland’s enormous surplus of artistic superiority. She springs from a musical tradition where the vocal is the primary and most important instrument. A tradition that transcends genres and musical predicates.
