Anna María - TIP 1-2015

Reviews and press about Saknað fornaldar

“The young Icelandic musician Anna Maria Björnsdóttir seduces from the first note. Pop, jazz and folk are intimately connected and unleash big emotions, but mostly the music is reduced to Anna Maria’s warm voice and a few accompanying instruments…. An absolute recommendation!”   Weltmusic Magazine review (DE)

“All in all, the music offers a wide range of sounds to lose oneself in; a perfect mixture of classical and modern elements to captivate the listener.” 8/10 Stefanie Oepen Stalker review (DE)

“Anna Maria’s wonderful voice deals well with the different colored sensibilities in the songs , the album is a romantic journey to the past. Ranging from massive to delicate moods and thus are an accurate reflection of the psychological states of the individual poets that Anna Maria has chosen for this remarkable album.” Sound&image review(DE)

“The voice that awaits us here is crystal clear and fascinating…. The beautiful old world captured the frantic new world that just yearns for change, such as by tradition.” 13/15 Thoralf Koss Musikreviews Magazine (DE)

“Great music, a little scary and partly melancholic” Tónskrattinn Bubbi Music blog (IS)

“Anna María managed to convert the poetry into a completely timeless musical format. Her voice is simply stunning: cool, elegant, crystal clear, powerful, cutting and loud. Wow.” Joe Whirlypop Glitterhouse (DE)

“All in all an athmospheric, dark yet bright piece of “spine-tingling” music.” Andreas Schiffmann Noisy neighbours page 28

“The album consists of eight Icelandic poems which the Icelandic singer performs with great empathy and in a captivating way. Her voice is amazing and gives you a good feeling of the poems even though you don’t understand Icelandic.” Nordis magazine:
