Description

kanst tú fylgja mær?

Power duo Dania O. Tausen and Ragnar Finsson are back with a slow(low key) summer banger about grieving old friendship in the new single “kanst tú fylgja mær?” (“would you follow me?”).

These hard-working multi-artists have made quite an impact on the music scene this past year. It’s no surprise that they had the most FMA nominations (local Grammy awards) and won album of the year for Dania’s latest album “ja/nei – og restin av vikuni”, which they produced together last year.

Building upon the momentum of the past year, “kanst tú fylgja mær?” lays a new and exciting path for the budding artists. “kanst tú fylgja mær?” is about grieving old friendships and romanticizing the idea of one last walk home from school with that one childhood friend.

The sentence “kanst tú fylgja mær” can have several meanings in Faroese:
1) asking someone to follow you home
2) asking someone if they understand (do you follow?)
3) asking someone to come grieve you at your funeral (follow someone to the grave/funeral procession)

Throughout the song the protagonists find out that they keep coming back to this subject of grieving when writing songs – and even further find out that they haven’t moved on at all. They keep falling back into old memories when encountering specific smells or walking specific streets and in the end must admit that they would love one last walk together. One where they get to say the unsaid and get some closure.

With their unique touch of the Faroese language, Dania and Ragnar use a language that everyone can relate to in a clever and sophisticated way. The same can be said about their productions and compositions, where they always seek an interesting and organic sound, mixed with layers of electronic elements, that you don’t really see coming. The music is light and intelligent with strong melodies and playful lyrics that make you stop and listen. A universe that is reflective and experimental, yet catchy and easy to get into. Now, once again, their pleasant voices merge together in a beautiful duet.

hendan gøtan burdi itið eftir mær
segði tú og rættaði uppá hárið
vit hava gingið her fleiri 100 ferð um árið
og í mínum dreymi týsdagin
spurdi tú

um eg vildi við tær inn
til tá ið framtíðin
ikki var til
tí tað var tú og eg

hendan troyggjan hevði riggað væl á tær
segði eg og rætti tær akslatræið
helt nokk at tað skjótt fór at vera kalda lagið
og í míni teldu sama kvøld
spurdi eg

um tú vildi við mær inn
til tá ið framtíðin
ikki var til í løtuni
sum vit

eg helt eg skrivaði um meg
men mitt í øllum síggi eg
eg tosi við teg
kanst tú fylgja mær heim?

eg helt eg skrivaði um teg
men mitt í øllum síggi eg
eg tosi við meg
har eg var komin víðari
kanst tú fylgja mær?
kanst tú fylgja mær
heim?

títt yndis luktilsi eg keypti tær áveg
úr taxfree handlinum í vágum
tað stóð í kø við mær í dag í onkrum bláum
og í øðrum lívi spurdi eg
minnist tú

tá tú vildi meg mær inn
til har ið framtíðin
ikki var til í løtuni
men vit

eg helt eg skrivaði um meg
men mitt í øllum síggi eg
eg tosi við teg
kanst tú fylgja mær heim?

eg helt eg skrivaði um teg
men mitt í øllum síggi eg
eg tosi við meg
har eg var komin víðari
kanst tú fylgja mær?
kanst tú fylgja mær?
kanst tú fylgja mær?

this street should be named after me
you said and fixed your hair
we’ve walked here a couple hundred times a year
and in my dream tuesday night
you asked

if I wanted to come with you
to where the future
still wasn’t real
‘cause it was you and me

this sweater would suit you well
I said and handed you the hanger
thinking that a cold-front was coming
and that night on my computer
I asked

if you wanted to come with me
to when the future
still wasn’t real
‘cause it was you and me

I thought I was writing about me
but suddenly I see
I’m talking to you
would you follow me home?

I thought I was writing about you
but suddenly I see
I’m talking to me
where I had moved on
would you follow me home?

that perfume I got you
in the tax free at the airport
stood in line with me today
wearing something blue
and in another life I asked
do you remember

when you wanted to come with me
to where the future
still wasn’t real
‘cause it was you and me

I thought I was writing about me
but suddenly I see
I’m talking to you
would you follow me home?

I thought I was writing about you
but suddenly I see
I’m talking to me
where I had moved on
would you follow me?
would you follow me?
would you follow me?
