Peacefulness is an achievement and a necessity when you’re living in a world that doesn’t accept you for one reason or the other. If it isn’t your skin, it may be the way your hair lays or who you’ve decided to love. Somehow, the violin in Selsom’s composition ‘Issor’ gives me a sense of mental freedom that makes me feel included in a world designed for others to succeed and maintain their succession (earlier in life). Am I victorious in my professional endeavours? I am, but it is seldom people want to know what you’ve endured getting there, so let’s enjoy Stian Vedøy’s masterpiece as he revels or basks in “swiftly becoming an indie playlist favourite” featured on BBC Music Introducing and more.
