Heiðrik


Heiðrik (Hi´drik) is the new sound of a new musical generation hailing from the Faroe Islands. Mixing dark electronic baselines with melodic haunting choirs and strings and last and not least a powerful yet fragile vocal, Heiðrik leaves all in phrase. Heiðrik was born and raised in the capitol Tórshavn of Faroe Island. A population of only about 50.000 the Faroe Islands are one of the North Atlantics smallest and best kept secrets. The Faroe Islands are situated northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. Read more on Last.fm
Heiðrik (Hi´drik) is the new sound of a new musical generation hailing from the Faroe Islands. Mixing dark electronic baselines with melodic haunting choirs and strings and last and not least a powerful yet fragile vocal, Heiðrik leaves all in phrase. Heiðrik was born and raised in the capitol Tórshavn of Faroe Island. A population of only about 50.000 the Faroe Islands are one of the North Atlantics smallest and best kept secrets. The Faroe Islands are situated northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. The harsh and yet beautiful nature of the Faroe Islands reflects the passionate and dramatic depths in Heiðrik´s music and voice. Although Heiðrik´s native language is Faroese Heiðrik both writes Faroese and English lyrics, although always taking great inspiration from Faroese traditional music and mixing it with new, refreshing sounds.

And it´s all made with equal passion. He co-produces and arranges all his songs in a style that spans from the uncompromising force of folk music, orchestral pop and electro. In short, Heiðrik isn't afraid of mixing his impulses. "When I think about the Faroe Islands there is a lot of mystery and literally a mist surrounding everything. And when I think about it, that is what I try to reflect in my music." says Heiðrik. Heiðrik´s lyrics could almost remind you of little fables. The content of his filmic and mystical lyrics draws heavily from Heiðrik´s daydreams and frustration in his isolated country. His eccentric and surreal imagination depicts stories about for instance the virgin Mary´s donkey.

The song Maria´s donkey is an oath to the donkey that carried Maria all the way to Betlehem, and Heiðrik feels that history has neglected the donkey´s great deed by carrying a whole religion on it´s back. Heiðrik is currently working on new material and soon we’re probably going to get a sneak preview, but until then stay tooned! Read more on Last.fm.
