Júníus Meyvant / Releases New Album 'Across The Borders' Ahead Of European Headline Tour
The second studio album from Iceland’s Júníus Meyvant, ‘Across The Borders’, is out now on Record Records / Glassnote.
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 unmistakable 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.
Marking the album’s release, Júníus Meyvant and his full band (which includes a brass section) will embark on an extensive European headline tour throughout February & March 2019. The UK leg of the tour will take in London, Manchester, and Bristol, marking Júníus Meyvant’s first UK shows since 2017.
