about

Twin Pines is the debut release of Forvitinn on the Raftonar output. He offers us a good variety of electronic poems – from the melancholic tale of a polar bear in capture in Mad Polar Bear, the thumping „4 to the floor“ of Third with a hint of melancholy, the club-banging remix of Third in the hands of the Icelandic tech-house wonder Terrordisco, the uplifting mind-boggling indie-pop of You Fought Soldier and the painfully beautiful modern classical piece of Even. Altogether this EP is a beautiful example of the complexity of Forvitinn‘s musical approach – offering something so delicate and sincere.

The Berlin-based Forvitinn is an enigmatic and daring artist. Aside from experimenting with music, he has made a reputable career as a painter, sculpturer as well as contributing to various video art and media art performances. He has done collaborations, for example with the respected choreographer Constanza Macras and the cellist Gyda Valtýrsdóttir (former member of the folktronica ensemble Múm) –as well with the Icelandic electronica veteran Ruxpin.

Raftonar Records is an Icelandic record label, focusing on high-quality electronic music.

Track Name: Mad Polar Bear
Great White Bear,
Polar Bear,
Why do you walk backwards
What is happening with you?
Track Name: You Fought Soldier
<chorus> You Fought Soldier </chorus>

I wake up in the morning and I feel so light
I'm able to fly, I feel alright
I wave to every person I meet on my way
It's no once thought I was always away
I keep those emotions, I feel so high
