In line with the traditions of her homeland, Eydís Evensen achieved an outstanding feat of tonal expressiveness with her debut “Bylur” last year. The Icelander carefully plays through dreamy piano harmonies, sometimes solo, sometimes accompanied by violin cello or trumpet but always with a well-formulated melancholy and a drama that immediately wreaks havoc on one’s soul.
Evensen composed all her works in isolation in the seclusion of the Icelandic hinterland or her flat in Reykjavik. It’s music for lovers and for mourners for cool sunrises and October days on which clouds obscure our central star. This delicate ambivalence resonating in Evensen's compositions shows how far her compositional process has already evolved. With her latest EP "Frost" (2022), she puts this to show once again and shows that consistent advancement is something she holds very dear.
