Emil Friis is a solo musician from Copenhagen, Denmark. He started out wanting to be a filmmaker, but states that, “For some reason which I’m still not quite sure of, I started writing songs”.
I came across his music while watching a fashion promo, and was completely drawn to the very atmospheric and filmic sound. The track’s called Sand In Your Eyes and there’s a video that’s been made for it, which in my opinion is very well executed.
He’s released three albums which you can stream here. He also has a bunch of recordings on his Soundcloud. I’d recommend checking out a track called The Man In The Wind which sounds like it was recorded in a bar – it’s a good’n.
Ladies and gents I give you Sand In Your Eyes…
