Havnatt is a Norwegian duo writing, performing and recording dark folk and neofolk music.

It all started when Cecilie Langlie (vocalist of Skumring, Vagrant God and Omit) and Tom Simonsen (guitarist/vocalist of It's the End, Skumring, Vagrant God and Omit) were commissioned by the Skagestad family to turn three poems by the late Norwegian author Tormod Skagestad into music. The three poems were Myrulla, Havnatt and Prammen from the collection of poems entitled Havdøgn. This was back in the spring of 2006, and it was intended to be a one-time thing.

Fast forward to the autumn of 2009. Cecilie and Tom were asked by Prophecy Productions to write an exclusive piece of music for a compilation album entitled Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings. The new Havnatt track included in that release was named Dagen og natta. The process also inspired Cecilie and Tom to start writing more Havnatt material. Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings was released on October 29th, 2010.

On February 15th, 2012 Havnatt released their Havdøgn EP on the Secret Quarters label. This release contains completely remixed and remastered versions of the tracks Myrulla, Havnatt and Prammen. In addition, the release also contains two completely new tracks that give a hint of the future direction of Havnatt.

Shortly after the release of Havdøgn, Cecilie and Tom went to work on their next release, determined to make it a full length album. They decided quite early on that the name of this album would be Etterlatte, after Tormod Skagestad's poem with the same name. The first single from this album, Var je solblesten, was released by Secret Quarters as a digital distribution only release on September 25th, 2012.

Now, the upcoming release of the Etterlatte album is not far away. Expect a release date to be announced at any time.
