Heiðrik – Maria’s Donkey

Do you know where Faroe Islands are? Right between Scotland, Norway and Iceland, in the middle of the coldest sea you can imagine. But in this handful of cliffs there ain’t just ice, wind and mist. Heiðrik (formerly known as Heiðrik á Heygum)  is a Faroese singer, songwriter and producer, and some weeks ago he released his new single Maria’s Donkey. Seven years has already passed since his last work, An Invisible Gun (2007), and that’s why this track sounds more like a new start than like a continuation of his old project. Mixing a folk attitude with distinct songwriting ability this northern artist will charm you with his warm voice, a pitch of strings and the ancient taste of his music.
