Sóley is the cutest creeper out there. The Icelandic singer-songwriter is so disarmingly charming, and her voice so exquisite, that even her songs about killer clowns, murderers and weird, one-eyed ladies are quite soothing.

You can read about her creepy/funny/fantastic set at Kex Hostel in Reykjavik as part of KEXP's broadcast during Iceland Airwaves here and get spooked now:
