Júniús Meyvant - Neon Experience


New Single Radio Impact Date 3rd June 2016
New LP ‘ Floating Harmonies’ Out 8th July 2016

Westman Islands singer-songwriter Júniús Meyvant has recently caused big waves in Scandinavia after being the star of the Icelandic Music Awards-winning Best Newcomer and Best Song as well as being nominated for Best Male Singer and Best Song this year.

From relentlessly touring and selling out halls and venues across Europe, Júniús has been receiving a lot of recognition from his unique soulful folk-pop sound. This lead to plays on Radio X, BBC Radio London and Amazing Radio. Impressively, his debut single Color Decay caused quite a stir in his homeland-reaching number 1 on National Radio for two weeks and then being chosen by KEXP’s Programming Director Kevin Cole as Song Of The Year. Moreover, Júniús’ fascinating guitar playing has left him compared to the talented Ben Howard.

Júniús Meyvant is back with his new single Neon Experience. By incorporating various fragments of soul, folk, pop and indie together, the result presents his creative abilities of the highest order. There’s depth, there’s feeling and intricacy, which the listener can wrap their ears in. The Aloe Blacc-style vocal performance with the Graffiti6-esque hooks, despite being 6 minutes long, can be heard repeatedly whilst retaining its magic. Oh, and there’s a mid-tempo sonic surprise in the middle…

Neon Experience radio impact date is 3rd June, very much increasing the appetite for the LP Floating Harmonies, out 8th July.
