A Faroe Islander whose distinctive, idiosyncratic tone compares to fellow “Northern Lights” artists such as Stina Nordenstam, Bjork and Sigur Ros.

Teitur Lassen is an intriguing writer and a moving singer whose performances on The Singer wreak a kind of understated but devastating passion comparable to Anthony & The Johnsons. Despite having recorded several albums since 2003 – he spent a few frustratingly unappreciated years with Universal before opting for a more self-determined route – The Singer is, to my knowledge, his first UK release, albeit a year later than most other territories.


Rather than a pop record, The Singer is in the tradition of lieder and art-song, with the extraordinary arrangements of marimba, prepared piano, brass, reeds, percussion and mournful bowed bass devised by Lassen and his chief collaborator Tróndur Bogason cut to the bone for maximum effect it’s often uncomfortable, but never uninteresting; for all its mischief and frivolity, it’s devoid of emotional artifice A rare beast.
