Afterglow is Isbjörg’s second release from their upcoming second full-length album which is expected to be released in early 2024.
Along with the latest release ‘Ornament’, ‘Afterglow’ marks a new era for the band who, since the release of their debut album ‘Iridescent’ in 2019, have welcomed Jonathan Kjærulff Larsen as their new front figure.
‘Afterglow’ is a grand, energetic and modern rock ballad that engulfs the listener in a melancholic soundscape driven by lead
singer Jonathan Kjærulff Jensen’s powerful voice and balanced by Isbjörgs characteristic piano-centered rock sound. Lyrically, the
song is centered around two people’s loss of control, whose carelessness and unusual actions result in a negative spiral of which they can’t escape.
‘Afterglow’ is available on all major streaming services today:
