Endless summer nights, when the sun never sets and you feel so utterly alive,
are a delineation of the most life-affirming moments we live.
Tired of spending his teenage years surrounded by stressful city life, at the age
of 18, Anton decided to move to his second home, the far away and secluded
Faroe Islands. A place where he had always found peace and solace.
The half Swedish, half Faroese multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and
producer, who had been playing in numerous bands for the past 10 years,
decided it was time for him to pursue his long-time dream of a solo career.
Now 19 year old, Anton Liljedahl is ready with his Debut EP: “Summarnætur”,
Faroese for Summer Nights.
With songs about finding happiness, believing in your dreams and living life at
it´s fullest, Anton captures many of the profound thoughts and feelings he
experiences in life. On nostalgic summer nights, you think about the freedom
and joy of your youth, that subsequently gives you a bright hope for what's yet
to come. This feeling is the essence of Anton's work.
Unlike a lot of Faroese music, Summarnætur is heavily inspired by uplifting
music. Anton draws inspiration from artists like The 1975, Bon Iver and
Swedish singer Veronica Maggio.
The EP was recorded and mixed in the well known “Svenska Grammofon
Studion”, with additional recordings made in Studio Bloch, Tórshavn.
”Liljedahl is not just an amazing songwriter, though. He is also skilled in playing
the piano, guitar, bass and drums. And, to make him appear even cooler, he
has an amazing voice. Take all this together, and you can see a star in the
making.” – Beehype, 2018
