ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"to my future" is a harmonic and strong musical work by Hjortur. Hjortur plays all the instruments and at the same time he gives the album the variation so there are lot of things to discover in each song. Sit down, relax and make yourself comfortable with this album!

"This is a collection of guitar-based songs; whilst there's a synth here and there, it is not an overtly electronic album in the way that Humanize (album by Hjortur, 2000) is. This album is in a largely pop style, seemingly taking its inspiration from the last four decades of pop music, as well as American folk music. "Hey, Hey, Can You Hear Me?" sounds rather more influenced by 80s soft rock, a genre that's often pretty sickmaking, but Hjortur's version of this style is excellent and this track is amongst my favorites on here. "Humanize" is reinvented here as a guitar-pop song, a bit 60s-tinged, and another favorite of mine. "No Matter What" is a sophisticated slow ballad, which is followed by the upbeat and catchy "Where Ever You Are" ."Wedding" sounds equally influenced by American and British folk music, as well as prog (in the guitar solos) and of course pop. The album finishes appropriately with "Goodbye", a laid-back yet very catchy piano/guitar based song. These are only a few of the superb, well crafted songs on here". - Kim Harten, Bliss Aquamarine (UK)

"The closest equivalent that comes to mind would be Nico's work with the Velvet
Denmark-based singer-songwriter Hjortur is a rather innocuous aspiring pop artist who writes songs that are both chuckle-inducing and endearing. His lyrics are in English but sung with a strong Nordic accent. The closest equivalent that comes to mind would be Nico's work with the Velvet Underground, only Hjortur sings with more emotion. The songs on To My Future are cute and sometimes even catchy as he expresses common pop song themes of love, loneliness and a desire for world peace. Hjortur sings, strums the guitar and programs the synthesisers and drum machines to make material not unlike what is currently on the Top 40 pop charts, with the exception of a youthful sexuality and air-brushed charisma. Instead Hjortur offers an earnestness and some melodic ability that gets the listener to hum or even sing along to a catchy line or chorus. To My Future may not be stirring for the music savvy collector but certainly is rewarding to those who like genuine expression even though it adheres to standard pop conventions.
