[Music] Svavar Knútur – Girl from Vancouver / While The World Burns (Single)

All thanks go to Christian Pliefke who sent this magnificent two-track single by Svavar Knútur, a bear of a man from Iceland whose vocal stylings remind me of Nick Drake or more than a few English and Scottish folk bards of the 1960s.

The first track, Girl From Vancouver is a cheeky, upbeat tune, but While The World Burns switches to minor key, and mesmerizes the listener with simple, gorgeous lyrics.
