Description

About Eitt minni

The second single from Faroe Islands collective Klingra evokes elegiac lamentations steeped in past-times yearnings. It offers an emotional piano composition with achingly moving field recordings from a 94 year old Faroese fisherman, who shared his stories as a sailor shortly before his death. These recollections touched on a tragedy that occurred by the west coast of Greenland in 1956, involving Faroese fishermen who had been forced out of local waters by German and British trawlers. When one of their ships sank, 14 men died, either from drowning or freezing.

With experience from Jack White, Eivør and Afenginn, the six members facilitate an ego-free chemistry, resulting in a wide-open invitation to listeners to think and feel, encouraged by Klingra’s powers of evocation.

Words: Dánjal á Neystabø
Music: Dánjal á Neystabø, Kim Rafael Nyberg

Abbi tosar:
…so komu teir í Føroyingahavnina, og líkini
vórðu trillaði niðan í Velfarshúsið og breidd
eftir gólvinum har.
So komu nakrir mans úr Godthåb at gera
kisturnar. Tá teir so høvdu gjørt kisturnar,
blivu líkini løgd í kisturnar.
Tá ið so tað arbeiðið var liðugt, kom ein
trolari frá kompagnínum eftir kistunum.
Tað vóru eini 14 líkkistur.
Og so kom ein vatnflúgvari eisini, hann
setti seg har á fjørðin, og kom inn ímóti
kaiini. Ein maður kom úr flúgvaranum og
yvir til okkum, sum bóru líkini oman til
bátin.
Hann snakkaði so… hesin her maðurin, og
takkaði fyri hetta arbeiði, sum vit høvdu
gjørt. Vit bóru teir oman. Eg minnist so
væl, tann, sum eg bar var 22 ár.
Ja, og so fór báturin avstað við líkunum, og
vatnflugvarin fór eisini, og tann maðurin,
sum hevði snakkað.
Soleiðis fóru teir allir avstað…
