Icelander Júníus Meyvant re-enters the Trenda: Nordic Charts in Iceland with ‘Mighty Backbone’.
Júníus Meyvant, Iceland’s much loved vocalist and previous Nordic Playlist curator, returns to the Trenda: Nordic Charts for Iceland with his track ‘Mighty Backbone’ landing in position 7. It’s the highest position to date for this track, but is still overshadowed by his album’s title track ‘Neon Experience’, which has spent four weeks in a row in the number one spot.
It’s been six weeks since ‘Mighty Backbone’ was last seen on the chart, with previous single ‘Neon Experience’ appearing twice on the chart in that time – receiving something of a revival in popularity when Júníus released ‘Mighty Backbone’.
Anyway, the track itself is a fine tune, featuring the orchestral arrangements, soft vocals and organic groove that Júníus has already made his trademark. We aren’t the only ones convinced that this is music you need to hear, as a few week’s back, the track was selected by prestigious LA radio station KCRW as ‘Today’s Top Tune’! If you want to find out more, tune in to Júníus’s Nordic Playlist and check out the session and interview that we recorded with the man himself during Denmark’s Roskilde Festival!
