Júníus Meyvant has announced plans to hit the road again for an impressive European tour in the early months of 2019, including three UK dates following a year away from the UK.
Building on his fast growing reputation for impressive live performances, the shows are set to feature an extraordinary seven piece band, with a brass section no less, and will mainly draw from Meyvant’s upcoming sophomore album Across The Border.
Recorded at the renowned Hljóðriti Studio on the outskirts of Reykjavik, and engineered & mixed by Guðmundur Kristinn Jónsson (Ásgeir, Erlend Oye, Hjálmar), the richly orchestrated album embraces a wide palette of sounds and is awash with soulful, charming melodies.
Throughout the eleven tracks, the natural warmth of Júníus Meyvant’s unmistakeable vocals are matched and heightened by a full string section and brass ensemble, creating a hearty wall of blissful sound. ‘Across The Borders’ showcases the very finest of Júníus Meyvant’s freaky-folk pop.
Newest single ‘High Alert’ is a sweet taste of what’s to come. With full band jazz elements that Meyvant touched upon on tracks like ‘Neon Experience’ and ‘Be A Man’ on his debut Floating Harmonies. On this new track his vocals are far more refined and crisp, as are the beats as he moves away from dreamier sounds.
