Solstafir premiere Silfur-Refur video

Solstafir video

Solstafir have premiered their epic video for Silfur-Refur, taken from sixth album Berdreyminn.

The follow-up to 2014’s Otta was released on May 26 and it’s available via Season Of Mist.

The band say: “Videos have always been a medium that we take seriously. We have worked with excellent visual artists like Bowen Staines and Vesa Ranta on previous clips. We’re privileged to have been able to enlist the team of Nico Poalillo and Peter Beste to create the imagery for Silfur-Refur.

“They directed and produced a video that beautifully illustrates our song – at least in our minds. The video’s meaning is a puzzle, which we’re leaving for you to solve, as we don’t want to spoil your imagination spinning stories of its own.”

Solstafir commence a European tour later this month, which includes four UK dates.

Solstafir: "A band is a glacier – there's a lot of stuff no one sees"

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
