Dagur Sigurðsson, who finished second in this year’s Söngvakeppnin with the song “Í stormi”,released a new song a while back. It’s called “Run”, and for those of you who enjoyed “Í stormi/Saviour”; this should be right up your alley!
Dagur + Júli = a winning team
Just like with “Í stormi”, Dagur has worked with Júli Heiðar Halldórsson on this new track as well. They worked with two other young talents on the Icelandic song writing scene; Fannar Freyr Magnússon and Marinó Geir Lilliendahl. It is in the same style as their Söngvakeppnin entry; a wonderful rock ballad which really showcases Dagur’s impressive vocal abilities.
OGAE Second Chance Contest
Even though Dagur didn’t win Söngvakeppnin 2018, he might still grab a Eurovision related trophy. The Icelandic chapter of OGAE, FÁSES, has nominated “Í stormi” as their entry in the OGAE Second Chance Contest. There he will compete against, among many others, Rebecca from Norway and Saara Aalto from Finland. If you want to; check out the official playlist on youtube! And if you’re an OGAE member; make sure to vote!
