Born and raised on the Westman Islands off the south coast of Iceland, Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson has been releasing music under the moniker of Júníus Meyvant since 2014. His debut release was 2014 single "Color Decay" which garnered praise across Iceland and in the U.S. from the likes of KEXP and NPR. The following year, Júníus went on to receive 'Best Single' and 'Newcomer of the Year' at the Icelandic Music Awards, and after successful tours in Europe and the U.S., Júníus Meyvant released his debut full length, 'Floating Harmonies' in 2016.
His latest album, 'Across the Borders' (out now on Glassnote Records), was self-produced and completely written by Júníus Meyvant, with engineering and mixing done by Guðmundur Kristinn Jónsson (Ásgeir, Erlend Oye, Hjálmar) at the renowned Hljóðriti Studio on the outskirts of Reykjavík. The richly orchestrated new record embraces a wide palette of sounds and is awash with soulful, charming melodies. Throughout the eleven tracks, the natural warmth of his unmistakeable vocals are matched and heightened by a full string section and brass ensemble, creating a hearty wall of blissful sound. The new music has been earning raves from Rolling Stone, TIME Magazine and beyond, and even earned Júníus an NPR Music "Artist to Watch" honor for 2019.
