You might not know the name, but you've probably already heard some of the work of Faroe Islands-raised, Denmark-based Eivør.
Having been making music for a number of years in Scandinavia, Eivør's creations have featured on the likes of Martin Scorsese’s latest film Silence, and in trailers for Game of Thrones and Homeland. Suitably atmospheric and cinematic, "Into The Mist" deserves your attention for more than the length of a trailer.
The track is an intensely dark experience - a sort of gothic electronica - only heightened by Eivør's vocal which moves from a intimate whisper, through Tanya Tagaq-esque throat singing right to a fierce higher register which delivers plenty of drama when it hits in the chorus. The video, below, is appropriately stirring.
"Into The Mist" is taken from the forthcoming album Slør; for her first commercial UK release Eivør has reworked her 2015 album of the same name, which was written and sung in Faroese. It was an eight month process to transcribe over to English but on this first impression the hard work has been completely worth it.
