“There is music in every situation you get yourself into.” So says Eivør –vocalist, instrumentalist and songwriter with a voice of rare beauty and power – when asked about where she gets her inspiration. These aren’t just words as she has relentlessly pursued music ever since dedicating her life to it at the tender age of fifteen.
It takes a skilled artist to be able to grasp and express this music and Eivør is such an artist; an acclaimed vocalist/composer at the peak of her powers.
Mikael Blak, Mattiasi Kapnas and Per I. Højgaard Petersen.
The word “Blív” can have different meanings in faroese. It can mean: to be, become, remain or stay (instead of running away). It’s in part inspired by Nietzsches philosophy about becoming who you are.
The songs on this album have been written over a period of 20 years. They touch on subjects about what it means to be human and include a hook of somekind. Høgni Kragesteen calls this genre existential pop!
