“It was during Covid and it had been so damn long since I was at SchwuZ which is my favourite among the plethora of queer bars in Berlin and I was craving the freedom, the pageantry and the LOVE. ‘All sweat, no tears’ was the first line written in the song and the hook came shortly after and within the first minutes we knew this was something special.” Ásdís says. “In about three sessions we were very close to the song as you hear it now and it was like the ground was bubbling underneath us. We knew we were standing in an active volcano of crazy dancing and I literally can’t describe how good it feel to finally share this song with the world.”
“Ásdís María is one of my all time best friends,” Daði adds. “Ásdís showed me the song when we were having a little get together at my house and I somehow managed to convince her to let me in on it. This is the first time I release something where I was not in the room when the first idea was born. Ásdís is both a ridiculously talented songwriter and singer, but she is also an amazing performer. I have all the confidence in the world that she is going on to bigger things and I’m honoured to have been part of her journey.”
