Kóboykex are a newly formed Faroese western/electro duo which includes Sigmund and Heiðrik. Sigmund and Heiðrik come from two very different musical backgrounds yet both are very prominent musicians in the Faroese music scene.
Kóboykex writes about a lot of ”hillbilly” type subjects. There is a certain commonality between the local Faroese culture and the American bible-belt. And the band wanted to shine a light on those ”share-values”.
The new duo hail from the remote and tiny Faroe Islands, a country located between Norway and Iceland with only 50.000 inhabitants.
Their new twist on the country/western genre which takes inspiration from Beck, Ennio Morricone, Patsy Cline, The White Stripes, Mirwais to old spaghetti westerns. A mix between country and electronica – a genre they call Countronica.
