Innovative Faroese American songstress Marianna Winter released her new single, ‘Consequences’, on the 28th of April via Tutl Records. The single follows her recently released record ‘Cruising’, which landed on Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The track is also on heavy rotation on Faroe Islands’ national radio station KVF.

In the press, her music has gained the support of UK online tastemaker magazines The Line Of Best Fit and Gigwise as well as All Music Magazine and Bands of Tomorrow.

She performed her debut festival show in her homeland at G! Festival. Then she took to the stage at UHØRT Festival in Denmark. Now, she is scheduled to perform in the UK later this year at The Great Escape. Her music has been featured on various Spotify playlists, namely Now Hear This in the UK

and De Nye in Denmark.

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. Drawing inspiration from

Lennon Stella, Daniel Caeser, Joesef, UMI,

and Mahalia, her sound can be likened to

SZA, Kehlani, and Alina Baraz.
