Faroese songwriter Eyði Horsdal is releasing “Foolish Blue”, the fourth single from his much-anticipated debut album “Songs with Eva”, out in March 2023 on Deluxe LP and digital via Tutl Records. “Songs with Eva” is Eyði Horsdal’s debut album.
‘A brief moment in front of the leaving train reaches far, those foolish blue eyes gleam through the mirrors of the windows of the tube and through you. Foolish Blue is a deep and dark light ballad with heavy bass, an ear-catching melody and a sparkling wine glass.’
As well as the recently released singles “It Seems To Be You Again”, “Old Friends”, and “Overs”, “Foolish Blue” is written together with talented young writer Eva Perrin Fontana (UK). Eyði Horsdal presents us with a heartfelt closeness and optimism while promising more to come in the Songs with Eva universe.
Through the poetry of talented young writer Eva Perrin Fontana, Eyði Horsdal invites us into a charmingly comforting space with a surprising depth that makes the 16-track album worth many a relistening.
“Songs with Eva” is a coherent collection of immediate and intuitive songs with a human and hand-played quality – with immersive and captivating recordings capturing live moments in a room – in the countryside – with the windows open – bringing drama to the simple songs.
