Royni enn at gloyma

Step into the hauntingly beautiful world of “Royni enn at gloyma” (EN: “Still trying to forget”) – the first single from Benjamin Rajani’s long-awaited upcoming debut album: “Tá hvørt ljós líkist tær” (EN: “When every light looks like you”).

This emotionally charged indie-folk tune, featuring a blend of banjo, guitar, and horns, paints a vivid picture of the heartache that comes with trying to forget someone you love, while desiring to embrace a new future.

Benjamin Rajani is a gifted Faroese singer/songwriter with a distinct flair for moving poetry and captivating melodies. His music is characterized by Nordic melancholy and is inspired by artists such as Sufjan Stevens and Sigur Rós. In a 2023 review of his performance at the internationally acclaimed G! Festival, the Faroese National Broadcast Company, KVF, wrote: “Benjamin has a true X-factor that is hard to describe… it is interwoven with atmosphere, charm, and fundamental musicality.”

Words & music: Benjamin Rajani

Eg royni enn at gloyma, at tú segði,
eg var tín,
bara tín.

Eg royni enn at gloyma tað, eg hevði;
tú vart mín,
bara mín.

Elskaði alt,
summarið, veturin –
saman við tær.
Sakni enn alt,
heystið og várið við,
saman við tær.

Eg royni enn at gloyma tað, eg føldi,
tá tú helt
fast í mær.

Eg royni enn at gloyma teg um kvøldið,
tá hvørt ljós
líkist tær.

Gloymi ikki teg –
hugsar tú um meg?

Mær er fortalt,
summarið, veturin
finst uttan teg.
Gev mær so alt,
heystið og várið við –
sjálvt uttan teg.

Eg royni enn at gloyma tað, eg hevði;
tú vart mín,
bara mín.
