Grímur is an up-and-coming Copenhagen-based singer-songwriter from a small village in Iceland called Hólmavík. Not too long ago, he released “Smoke”, a bittersweet indie-folk ballad from his upcoming album.
Grímur – “Smoke”
“So, I keep my hat down low, and now I’m sharing smoke with someone I barely know. And tonight, be in my dreams tonight, and there you will be my bride. And where we walk down the aisle and you’ll say, ‘It’s time to wake up now.’ But how could you sleep in somebody’s arm other than mine?” – lyrics
‘Smoke’ tells a bittersweet story of a young guy who has a secret admiration for a certain young lady who he desires to be with romantically. Apparently, when she’s up close and personal, he thinks of words to say, but nothing ever comes out of his mouth pertaining to how he feels about her.
So, to not look foolish, he smiles and nods his head hoping she will say something to him. At this moment he feels like such a fool, knowing that he has blown his opportunity of obtaining what he desires the most, which is her. Years later, it saddens him to find out that she used to like him too.
‘Smoke’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and guitar-driven instrumentation perfumed with a nostalgic aroma.
Grímur – “Smoke”
