This review is from: The Singer (Audio CD)
Teitur sounds very different to others in the current crop of singer-songwriters. One difference is his arrangements, which are sparse but deceptively complex, based on unusual, often acoustic, instruments that sound other-worldly. His lyrics, sung in English, are often quite dark. However, it is his song structures that are the most striking, sometimes sounding like art songs or lieder rather then 'pop', but mysteriously memorable, often popping up in my head, leaving me wondering 'what is that tune?'. A definite grower that needs a few listens to get used to, like many of the best.
