Marianna Winter (FO)
Emerging Faroese/American soul-pop singer Marianna Winter is one of the few female artists currently pioneering the lo-fi underground scene in the Faroe Islands. Born and partly raised between Tórshavn and California, she challenges her homeland’s musical and cultural status quo, adding an LA heat to the quintessential Nordic sound, thus offering a unique perspective into both cultures.
Recurring themes of love, and subsequent break-ups, embed themselves into the lyrical content of Winter’s newly released EP “Sorry, I’m a Libra” as her airy Chet Baker-esque vocals pair themselves with the sonic stylings of Jai Paul. Her new and unreleased songs dive deeper into a new understanding of who she is as a person, analyzing her need to please others and her distrust in people’s intentions.
