Hafdis Huld - Pop Album of The Year
Hafdis Huld's debut album Dirty Paper Cup (Redgrape Records) has won the Pop Album of The Year at the Icelandic Music Awards. Her new single Diamonds on My Belly is out in the UK on 19th March 2007.
Hafdis, the UK-based pop pixie and former singer with Gus Gus, has been winning legions of fans over the past few months with support gigs for Paolo Nutini and Vincent Vincent & the Villains and a major gig in Paris.
Hafdis's music is full of feelings and melancholy, her unique sound comes from the combination of such a soft voice in the most calm and acoustic environment. Her album 'Dirty Paper Cup' is described as fresh, funny, odd, seductive, Icelandic and above all, great pop music.
