"Since initiating her solo career in 2010 with the EP Theater Island, Soley Stefansdottir has proven to be relentless in terms of both versatility and productivity. Her third EP Don't Ever Listen shortly follows her sophomore album Ask The Deep, released through Morr Music in the spring of 2015. Don't Ever Listen collects five intimate pieces that were originally recorded as demos for Ask The Deep, but dismissed by Soley because she wanted the album to feature fewer guitar sounds. As with her two EPs before - in 2014 she had re-released Kromantik, a collection of piano instrumentals - Soley takes the format as an opportunity to explore new sides to her unique talents. The songs on Don't Ever Listen have been either recorded on the Irish island Inis Oirr or in Soley's home in Iceland during the year 2012. Having just moved houses, she needed to opt for a more provisional solution as her studio hadn't been fully set up. This allowed for a more lo-fi, undoubtedly charming atmosphere and even gave Soley's feline flatmate Toa a place in the spotlight: As the only guest on the EP, it contributed a few well-pitched meows to the EP's title track."
