About vekt

The album “Vekt” is self-produced. Rebekka moved her gear in to an old cheese factory “Ostahúsið” for seven days, and recorded most of the album there. The rest was recorded and mixed by Theodor Kapnas in Studio Bloch in Tórshavn, and Sefi Carmel mastered the album in his studio in London. Guitarist Rólant Lenvig av Reyni, Keyboard player Líggjas Olsen and drummer Per I. Højgaard also appear on the album.

Rebekka Petersen has an ambivalent relationship towards music making. She loves to write and record, but feels awkward about performing. One could say that this also reflects in her introspective lyrics that tend to deal with anxieties and existential wonderings.

The title of the album “Vekt” means “Weight” in english. It is also the title of the final track on the album. The song is a reflection upon feeling heavy from time to time.
