Following the release of her stunning 2011 album We Sink, Icelandic songstress Sóley Stefánsdóttir takes the Best Fit Q&A and educates us on classical music, scares us with her super power choice and tells us who she’d most like to apologise to.

Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Johnny Depp!

What would your superpower be and why?
Killing people with my eyes. Don’t ask me why.

What’s your idea of heaven?
Nah, there is no heaven…

What one thing have you learnt from your parents?
Be an honest and good person.

What song do you wish you’d written?
‘The Rite of Spring’ by Igor Stravinsky, 4:33 by John Cage and ‘Dreams‘ by Fleetwood Mac.

If you could say something to your 15 year old self, what would it be?
I would tell me to not worry: I will fall in love one day!

What’s your re-occurring nightmare?
That I have a show and it’s about to start and I haven’t plugged anything in and the loopstation doesn’t work. I always have that while touring, haha!

What song will they play at your funeral?
Apparition De L’Église Éternelle by Messiaen. Such a crazy scary piece!

What five people would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
Vince Noir, Tina Fey, Stravinsky, Edward Gorey and Amélie.

Who would you most like to apologise to and why?
My family for not telling them enough how much I love them!
