Not another singer songwriter this week features Teitur (old Norse for happy apparently) Lassen. Originally from the Faroe Isles, the fact he won a recording contract and publishing deal with universal strangely won him business man of the year in 2004!
Relocating to Denmark he has released 5 lps of hushed vocals and quiet romanticism. Equally at home with acoustic strums as with rich orchestral backing, his songs spend a lot of time in a minor key.
I got to know his music through a compilation he put out All My Mistakes which pulls together a selection of songs from his previous 4 English Language lps (he as recorded one in his native tongue)
I Don't Want You to Wake Up - Teitur
If you liked this then I'd heartily recommend All My Mistakes which feels like it could be the soundtrack to a Wes Anderson film
