Danish math-stadium rock group Isbjörg released their new single “Ornament” on January 27th, 2023. The single is the first release from Isbjörg’s upcoming second studio album, which is planned to be released by the end of 2023.

“Ornament” is Isbjörg’s most ambitious release to date and marks a new era for the band who, since the release of their debut album Iridescent in 2019, have got Jonathan Kjærulff Jensen as their new lead singer. “Ornament” is an energetic pop-rock song disguised in odd time signatures, distorted guitars and Isbjörg’s characteristic, swirling piano. The song captures many of the musical aspects of the coming album. The good melody is in focus but is served in Isbjörg’s own odd and forward-thinking fashion.

Epic moments, odd passages and instrumental mastery all have their place on the new release while it is Jonathan’s characteristic, bright and melancholic voice that takes the song to a whole new level and, together with the music, tells a story of how lacking communication can spur fake facades, doubt and pain among otherwise happy people.
