Half-Icelandic and half-Italian, singer-songwriter Emiliana Torrini is all soul. Everyone’s heard bands from Iceland, but influences reach far beyond the music her country is known for, with influences from folk, hip-hop, and psychedelia. Catch her at Highline Ballroom on Aug. 14 for a show in support of her third album, Me And Armini. With its experimental title track gathering steam as a single, her show is guaranteed to silence all your Björk jokes.
