Danish/Faroese alternative rock artist DÓTTIR has spent the better half of 2018 laying down tracks for her debut album SEEKER, besides playing gigs in Denmark and the Faroe Islands. ”Queen of Darkness” is the first single and is a haunting song of self‐determination, with soaring vocals and gritty guitar set over rolling bass and drums. It goes on a dark journey into the mind, opening the listener up to hope and redemption. While exploring new areas with a touch of 70’s rock, 90’s grunge, DÓTTIR extends her unique Nordic, mythical and atmospheric style, known from her latest EP Division, and gives a fresh boost to the alternative rock scene.
DÓTTIR is an up-and-coming Danish-Faroese artist who has made a name on the alternative rock scene with her mysterious and experimental style. She released herfirst single, Yellow Trees back in 2014, which was followed by a string of concerts in Denmark and the Faroe Islands – where DÓTTIR (Súsanna Herálvsdóttir) was born. This was followed by a solo tour in Russia leading-up to a Faroese festival together with Kristian Blak and Yggdrasil and Marius Ziska. In April 2017, she released the EP “Division” in collaboration with the Faroese label TUTL, followed by a tour in Copenhagen and the Faroe Islands. In the past year, she’s been recording songs for her full-length debut album “Seeker” in collaboration with TUTL, expected for release in early 2019.
DÓTTIR composes and writes her own songs, and has been fine-tuning her production, music and performance over the past few years. With a style all her own, it’s no surprise that there is a growing fan base for the captivating Danish-Faroese artist.
