not doing many sad songs

In the first years of my solo career - the period around Debut - I wasn’t able to record a dark or sad song. You have to know, I was raised hardcore happy. That’s something typically Icelandic : to be happy, to feel good, to see everything from the positive side. So it took me a lot of courage to try something moody. On Debut it didn’t work, on Post it did, eventually. Possibly Maybe was my first dark song.
