EIVØR Signs to Season of Mist
Posted on September 18, 2023
Season of Mist is proud to welcome Eivør to our label!
Eivør has come a long way. She was born and raised in Syðrugøta, a tiny coastal village on the northern part of the Faroe Islands. This icy and windswept backdrop still ripples behind her boundless vocals, which have led her to become one of the most acclaimed artists in the Nordic world.
Just like some of her inspirations Björk and Sigur Rós, Eivør has won the Icelandic Music Prize more than once, along with multiple Danish Music Folk Awards and the 2021 Nordic Council Music Prize. Her combination of dark electronica and Faroese folk have racked up close to a billion streams, sold out tours in Europe and the United States and soundtracked God of War Ragnarök and Netflix’s flagship series The Last Kingdom.
But don’t just take our word for it. Metal Hammer described her voice as “stunning, classically-trained…going from glorious to demonic in a flash”, while Prog compared her electronic beats and “spine-tingling” vocals to Portishead and Kate Bush.
“My team and I are incredibly proud and excited to work with Season of Mist,” Eivør says. “After a few years of self-releasing my music, I am very much looking forward to becoming part of the SOM family and to all the new adventures that lay ahead.
“We are equally thrilled to partner with Doomstar Bookings on all our upcoming live shows. An exciting run of 2024 concerts is coming soon!”
Be on the lookout for announcements about Eivør’s next album, which will come out in 2024.View Eivør
