With chest-swelling ambience and deep-cutting vocals, Eivør’s latest single “Only Love” ft. Ásgeir evokes a sense of starry-eyed pleasure and pain as they ruminate on the subject of love. Reflecting on its simplicity and dark complexities at the same time, Eivør and Ásgeir pour their hearts out over the gorgeous midtempo as they embrace both the light and dark sides of it. The single comes with a video directed by artist Anna Maggý and was show in Iceland:

Speaking of the song, Eivør said: “I wrote the lyrics with David Hopkins and when this song was written I thought about ‘love’ and all the things it makes us do. I will never get tired of writing about this subject. It’s the most complex and yet the most basic of all things. It has so many shapes and shades and on this life journey it takes us through the whole palette of emotions. It’s both strong and fragile at once. It breaks us and makes us whole. Sometimes we have to lose it first to find it and when we find it we are afraid of losing it. I believe that everyone we ever loved will always be a part of us somehow deep within. Even when the love didn’t last. I find much beauty in that.”

Ásgeir added: “I got to know Eivør when I sang with her on her Christmas shows in Reykjavik in 2018 and we got along really well and I enjoyed working with her and her band. Later on Eivør sent me the track ‘Only Love’ and I was honoured that she asked me to sing with her on this song.”
