What makes a song popular?

Sometimes when we are writing songs, we think a little more commercially than at other times. That is to say some songs Solskala write are intentionally more commercial than others. One of our songs which is proving to be the most popular (so far) is Lava, which is on our La-La-La album (available from this link >>> bit.ly/1DENoyi).

Our song Lava was never meant to be commercial in fact, anything but. The song is inspired by a visit to Parque Nacional de Timanfaya in Lanzarote; an incredible landscape that has to be seen to be believed! The story of the song is that we were on a bus tour of the Parque Nacional and thinking of a soundtrack for the bus tour, a sound-scape that captured the mystical essence and ambient magic (and menace) of the area… thus was born the song Lava!

So, here is Solskala‘s most popular song to date, at least as far the album goes, What day is it? is actually our most MOST popular song, but it isn’t on our album 🙂
