Scandinavia’s hot new artist Heidrik releases new video/single ‘Maria’s Donkey’

By on July 7, 2014

Heiðrik is a Faroese, Danish and Icelandic singer, songwriter and producer, who has recently been working on his upcoming debut single Maria’s Donkey. He teamed up with the multi-award winning composer Rosabella Gregory (BMI Award, Cosmopolitan Woman Of Achievement, BBC Pebble Mill Winner, Pullen Memorial Prize) to create a unique strings- driven arrangement for his song.


Having collaborated with the likes of Jools Holland and Delilah, Rosabella’s long-standing experience gorgeously compliments Heiðrik’s creative songwriting skills to bring together the sonically elegant Maria’s Donkey.


The tone is set immediately by a very minimalistic intro with just the pizzicato strings for company. Leading into a soft and crystal-clear vocal, it creates a feeling of restraint that is softly audible to the listener.


Maria’s Donkey resembles Gotye doing a Lars Von Trier soundtrack, and is an interesting lead into the world of one of Scandinavia’s hottest new artists. In other words, Heiðrik’s upcoming new single is a real treat for everyone, and will be available for sale and download everywhere from 14th July.
