Heiðrik (Hi´drik) is the sound of a new generation of music hailing from the remote and tiny Faroe Islands.
After moving to Iceland to study Fine Art, Heiðrik started to record his new album “Funeral” which was produced by Janus Rasmussen from the famous electro duo with Ólafur Arnalds - Kiasmos. His new album Funeral is a collection of songs dealing with his past as and LGBT youth of his isolated conservative home environment. The album, consisting of 10 organic and acoustic tracks driven by piano, strings, ukulele as well as Heiðrik’s softly expressive vocal, takes us on a melancholic, confrontational and mildly humorous journey inspired by jazz and folk from 1920s to the 1950s. Heiðrik won for best singer at FMA in the Faroe Islands 2017 and his fragile and versatile voice has been compared to singers, such as Anohni from Antony and the Johnsons, Jeff Buckly and Roy Orbison
