New Eivør Release
It is finally here, Eivør's new release, Slør, which TUTL has licensed through A&G Records Ltd / Absolute Label Services in the UK. The release comes just ahead of Eivør’s first UK headline tour. The record is an english version of the album of the same name, with two new live songs as well.

Already a well-known recording artist of over 16 years’ prolific output, Eivør has worked across a disparate clutch of collaborative projects, since releasing her debut solo album aged just 16.

 

Besides scoring the forthcoming series of blockbusting BBC/Netflix flagship The Last Kingdom with Ivor Novello nominee John Lunn (Downton Abbey, Waking The Dead), Eivør’s music has also been synced on Scorsese’s Silence, alongside trailers for Game Of Thrones and Deep Water Horizon (Mark Wahlberg).Eivør has also collaborated on the trailer soundtrack for Metal Gear Survive, and last year appeared at Los Angeles’ huge E3 gaming event, where she performed via live stream to a global audience of 50 million at the launch for Playstation’s God Of War.

Slør is - rather incredibly - Eivør’s first commercial release in the UK. It’s one that has been over 2 years in the making- with Slør actually an English-translated re-imagining of her Faroese-sung 2015 album release of the same title. Eivør originally wrote the Faroese version of Slør - which translates as ‘veils’ or ‘blurriness’ - having returned to her childhood home in the remote archipelago of The Faroe Islands.

 

“Slør is very much about my roots- I just really wanted to go home, be back in the old environment. There was something exhilarating about being back at the heart of where I came from as a person and an artist, all the while realising how many things inside me had changed," Eivør explains.

Working closely with her producer Tróndur Bogason, Eivør has reconciled the Faroes’ remote majesty with the thoroughly modern world of her dark, intelligent electronica.

 

“The landscape I grew up with, it seemed so natural to turn into an electronic landscape, because it has this electric sound in it, you know. All these wild, crazy sounds- stormy, winds, and the ocean.”

 

The fruits of the meticulous 8 month period of transcribing the album into English are borne out in spades- teeming with darkly hooky pop, you sense Slør will ensure Eivør doesn’t remain a veiled presence for much longer.
