Friday Fever: BYRTA

BYRTA is a new electro pop duo from the Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. Founded this year by Guðrið Hansdóttir and Janus Rasmussen, they met while they were both living in Reykjavík, Iceland and they started experimenting with some new songs together. The result was BYRTA and the bands debut album will be out in Spring 2013. All the songs are in Faroese inspired by 80´s music and Scandinavian pop. Lucky for you guys that will be attending Menningarnótt (Reykjavik Culture Night) Byrta will be playing this year, so make sure you check them out.

Their music video for Norðlýsið is different in a interesting way and its absolutely mad. Cruising around in Faroe Island style, I don’t know how to describe it any further but you need to check it out and you will be blown away.
