ja/nei – og restin av vikuni (2023)
ja / nei – og restin av vikuni (yes / no – and the rest of the week) is Dania O. Tausen’s second album. Like on her first album, Dania collaborates with her cousin, multi-instrumentalist and producer Benjamin Djurhuus. This time they also invited talented songwriter and musician Ragnar Finsson (Horrse, Raske Drenge) to join them on the journey. An album dedicated to diving into the ordinary (shopping, working, traveling) and researching how it leads us onto bigger subjects (absurd reality, electronics in nature, unconsciousness, toxicity, making the right choices). To clear things up, the album is divided into two halves: the yes-side and the no-side. “The rest of the week” is a way of saying that there are many grey areas in between.
Dania O. Tausen’s debut album:Gonguteigatúnatos was released in July 2021 and is a unique and experimental album with light, playful and intelligent music. Dania is mostly praised for her strong melodies and quirky lyrics that make you stop and think. The universe of Dania is reflective and experimental yet welcoming and easy to listen to.
Faroese poetic singer and songwriter Dania O. Tausen interprets a playfully emotional imagination while using the Faroese language in a unique way. She’s charismatic yet down to earth. A relaxing vocalist who dares to think outside the box.
Faroese singer, songwriter and poet Dania O. Tausen expresses herself in her mother tongue Faroese with alternative pop/folk music.
Drawing inspiration from jazz and rock, Dania’s concerts are always both energetic and intimate. Even if you don’t understand a word she’s singing, she and her young female rhythm section manage to musically transport you to another world.
Dania has played and is currently playing various festivals and showcases. With the release of her second full-length album this autumn on Tutl Records (FO) and in collaboration with Motion PR Agency (GB), Dania once again shows that she is a multi-talented artist: co producing the entire album, doing choir arrangements, directing an album music short film and designing her own merchandise.
The reviews have been outstanding all over the world and she’s finally starting to be recognised for her musical and storytelling talents.
“Skál” is the title of the debut poetry collection of Dania O. Tausen. The collection is both personal and bold and describes the existential challenges and religious doubts one is faced with when growing up in a Christian community. The 15 poems portray two people who take turn in telling their personal stories and the journey from security into uncertainty. The young poet describes her doubts which lead her into another path of life. The collection is published by Sprotin.
