An 18-year-old singer-songwriter from the Faroe Islands, Elinborg Pálsdóttir has been delivering her magical folk songs for a few years now.
Her debut EP, “Spor“, came out in August last year and it contained four tracks Elinborg wrote by herself and sung in the Faroese language. In the studio, she was accompanied by a splendid team of local musicians who helped her songs sound rich, while preserving all the delicacy of Elinborg’s songwriting and her entrancing voice.
While the beauty of her studio work is one thing, Elinborg’s also known for her captivating live performances, which earned her the title of the Live Act Of The Year at the recent Faroese Music Awards ceremony.
Hopefully she’s working on new material right now. Meanwhile, above you can watch “Tanki”, the latest single off her debut mini-album, accompanied by a straightforward night-commune video directed by Torfinnur Jákupsson.
