I love Prins Póló (or is it PrinsPóló? Read on to find out) so I'm pretty happy that they have just released a wonderful new record called 'Sorrí'. The herd, led by Svavar Eysteinsson, formerly of Rúnk and Skakkamanage, are in fine form as always.
The album includes asome songs that are a little familiar already, such as Tipp Topp (listen below) which has been around for a while plus a load of excellent new songs.
The new album release seemed like a good excuse to have another chat with Svavar...
Your new album is called "Sorrí". Are you sorry? What are you sorry for?
Yes, I think "Ég kem med kremid" is one of the best. But you must understand that these songs were written over more than two years period and many different things and ideas happens in one persons life meanwhile. So each song has a personal feeling and personal life experience grown into it. The main manifesto for this album was to make only A-song, but no B-songs. So I threw away all songs I did not love. Many hated songs were put in the trash can in the process of this album.
I can't wait to catch up with the Herd and go live this summer.
We will hopefully have the opportunity to go abroad and do some minimal touring in the coming winter. We are open for booking.
OK, important stuff. Is it Prins Póló or PrinsPóló?
It used to be Prinspóló - Now we are Prins Póló. Beware of the fakes.
And that's a Polish chocolate bar right? How many of those things do you eat?
My mother in law always brings me one or two when we meet.
Thank you! It was a pleasure!
