The result turned out perfect!”

Praise for Freyr:

 “Freyr’s delivery has the intimacy of Sufjan Stevens and Sigur Ros, which in itself is enough to take your breath away… one of those voices that sets your soul at ease. The album’s title track is another mellow masterpiece.” – The Revue

“Yet another reason to believe that [Freyr] is one of the best young voices on the folk music scene…taps into a majestic feeling, full of beautiful vocal moments and atmospheric tenderness that you just can’t fake.” – We All Want Someone To Shout For

“the beat of a trip-hop song, the instrumental of an experimental indie track, and the melody and vocals of a great pop-folk song. Altogether, Freyr presents a unique style yet it all sounds quite familiar.” – Where The Music Meets
