Junius Meyvant - Across The Borders [Record Records]

To be released via Record Records on January 25th, 2k19 is "Across The Borders", the sophomore album by Icelandic artist Unnar Gisli Sigurmundsson, better known to fans of the islands thriving music scene under his artistic nom de guerre Junius Meyvant. Born and raised on the small 4000 people island of Heimaey his soulful 2016-released album "Floating Island" was praised and critically acclaimed all over the place and surely his new eleven song elaboration will strike a chord within both fans and critics as will. Rich, luscious orchestration, a touch of Soul, Junius Meyvant's smokey vocal performance  and - most importantly - a massive vintage vibe are bringing us back to golden 70s Californian sunsets, endless rides on American highways, a general feel of ease and unlimited possibilities and a glorious future to come with its soundtrack being tunes like "High Alert", the sweet late night jam that is "Holidays", the Yacht anthem "Let It Pass", the dancefloor filling Uptempo Soul killer "New Waves" or the Country-infused "Carry On With Me". Good stuff, this.
