SAKARIS is the main project of Faroese electro producer Sakaris Emil Joensen. Starting out in 2010 with his quirky 8-bit electro funk debut Darling EP and further establishing himself with the full-length 2012 album I Have Beautiful Eyes, SAKARIS has become one of the most prominent electro artists to emerge from the remote and tiny Faroe Islands in recent years.
The music ranges from tight, bright and optimistic dance music to soaring 80s nostalgic soundscapes. The latter years have been littered with performances on various prominent festivals, such as the Spot Festival, JaJaJa Festival, G! Festival, Dias Nordicos and Waves Vienna, along with press hype from Clash Music, Wired UK and The Line of Best Fit.
2014 saw the release of three online-only singles Score Music, I Put on This Dress Only for You and Downer, all of them sharing an upbeat and tight dance feel and gender bending girl/boy relations lyrics.
Following this, SAKARIS now looks forward to more touring and a possible album to be released in 2015.
