Fremmand means stranger in Faroese referring to the themes in a lot of the songs, based on the feeling of alienation as well as themes of loneliness and isolation. The music is exploring the tension between dreams and desperation, and draws a line to early goth and post punk, but is also forward looking. Fremmand is fronted by the charismatic lead singer Jana Hjalgrimsdóttir, who with her all-in attitude is like the volcano Vesuvius erupting. Fremmand's self-titled debut album released in 2018, is synth driven with references to early 80’s New Wave. Five singles have been released from the album, all gaining radio airplay. Since the release of the debut, the band has molded their sound into their own unique blend of nordic indierock and has now a more guitar driven sound, opposed to the synth oriented debut album. Fremmand’s line up is Jana Hjalgrimsdóttir on vocals, Tinna Tótudóttir on bass, guitar player Sigmund Zachariassen and drummer Tobias Weltzer, who is also producer for the band. Fremmand is always trying to push the boundaries, to keep evolving as a band.
