Son of Fortune

Debut album by Son of Fortune has a ‘sign’ title that stems from old norse, meaning ‘full moon’. It is fitting as it has come about during nights of full moon – both the writing and recording of the record happened during a full moon cycle. This record shows the force of Faroese indie rock: strong melodies, solid craftsmanship, and originality. About the album, Benjamin says:

“On a full noon night in July 2015, me and Jan Rúni took our instruments into an old rehearsal space in Fuglafjørður, Jan Rúni’s hometown. We used this rehearsal space, which is normally occupied by the local brass band, intensively during our teenage years and in this familiar room, the music instantly started to flow through us.

Ideas emerged, riffs, melodies and sounds were captured on a tape recorder and all of this was to become “Son of Fortune”. So, during this full moon night of insomnia, a new era had begun.

Shortly after, we went into studio Bunkarin together with long time friend and musical partner Mikael Blak, where he arranged and recorded the album Fullmáni.

For five days in August, also around a full moon, our unique correlation was captured by engineer Fred Ruddick who also mixed the record. The musical landscape we had created called for a poetic lyrical landscape. Jóanes Nielsen and Petur Pólson, two famous poets from the Faroe Islands were used to provide the music with a deeper sense of mystery, magic and refined taste.

Together with artist Jón Sonni Jensen, photographer Beinta á Torkilsheyggi and Maibritt Marjunardóttir we created a visual identity to match the music.

I would like to thank you for buying this record and hope you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”
