Swedish-Icelandic Singer/Songwriter Freyr Announces Debut EP + Shares New Song “Neighbour Boy”
April 24, 2020 BY Nettwerk
Swedish-Icelandic singer/songwriter Freyr has announced his debut EP I’m Sorry will be released on July 3, 2020 via Nettwerk. Today he shares a second track called “Neighbour Boy,” which leaps along on organic percussion, finger-snaps, and breezy strumming, all while delivering a heartfelt, yet heavy message.
Listen To “Neighbour Boy” Here:
Freyr says, “’Neighbour Boy’ is about leaving home too early. My parents moved back to England, and I stayed home. So, I was away from my brother, sister, mom, and dad. I wasn’t mature enough for such a change yet. I’m singing to a dude who thinks he’s ready to go on a big adventure that I know is too heavy for him to carry.”
With a down-to-earth musical expression, Freyr finds something big in the minimalistic. He builds up fragile melodies that encircle both time and space, as evidenced in his first single, title track “I’m Sorry.”
Nature is a dominant influence Freyr’s music. The source of that can be traced back to two things: his upbringing in Umeå, a city located in the mellow forests of the northern Sweden), and the stillness of Iceland, where he spent most of his childhood summers. Through his view of these environments, he invites listeners to an intimate space of storytelling.
Stay tuned for more music from Freyr.
