Just over two years ago we were enchanted by the chilled and dreamlike sounds of Sommer by Danish duo Nicolai Kornerup and Hannah Schneider, aka AyOwA. Inspired by the likes of the Cocteau Twins and Boards Of Canada, the duo, who turned their long-term friendship into a musical collaboration, have created another mesmerising dose of dreamy electronic goodness. Farvel (meaning goodbye in Danish) is the title track to their forthcoming EP release at the end of the month and sees them exploring acoustic elements in their musical soundscape with the introduction of sweeping string arrangements. It’s a gorgeous addition that only heightens the intimate feel of this beautiful and melancholic ballad sung entirely in Danish. Previous tastemaker praise has come from the likes of the Line of Best Fit, Clash, Noisey, and Wonderland, while BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio X, and Beats 1 have all supported alongside P3 and P6 radio stations in their native Denmark. Next month they will be supporting Eivør on their European tour that will include three dates in the UK (Norwich, Brighton, Cardiff). Insidiously captivating and mellow, Farvel is an absolute joy and their best yet.
