“…hugely influenced by nature, her post-classical compositions have grown into works that are immersive, delicate and intensely emotive…she’s able to mould them into a sonic journey that’ll stick with you long after the last note is played” –The Line Of Best Fit
“Few artists are so effortlessly able to twist your heartstrings into a contortion of joy, sorrow and despair like Eydís Evensen” – Wonderland Magazine.
Eydís Evensen hails from the remote, northern Icelandic town of Blönduós, where, as storms raged outside, she grew up listening to music of all sorts, from Tchaikovsky to Radiohead to Led Zeppelin. Championed heavily by the likes of The Line Of Best Fit and KEXP, she released her debut album Bylur on XXIM Records (Sony) in April 2021, described by Dustin O’Halloran as “a beautiful debut full of rich and nuanced arrangements”.
In the short time since launching her live career, Eydís has performed throughout Europe and the US including at major taste-maker events including Reeperbahn, Eurosonic, Iceland Airwaves, SXSW and ARTE Concert Festival (La Blogotheque) alongside curated headline shows in cities all over. Eydís embarks on her first headline tour in June 2023 with her new album The Light, released in May 2023 on XXIM (Sony).
