Emerging Faroese/American soul-pop singer Marianna Winter is one of the few female artists currently pioneering the lo-fi underground scene in the Faroe Islands with her gritty yet catchy pop melodies. Born and partly raised between California and Tórshavn, she challenges her homeland’s musical and cultural status quo, adding an LA heat to the quintessential Nordic sound, thus offering a unique perspective into both cultures.
Recurring themes of love and life lessons learned embed themselves into the lyrical content of Winter’s new releases. Paired with her airy Chet Baker-esque vocals and modern alternative-indie-pop references, the songs dive deeper into a new understanding of who she is, analyzing her need to please others and her distrust in people’s intentions. Being in her early twenties has led to a lot of soul-searching and working out her past to better understand her present and set a course toward the future she wants.
