Myrkur, the project headed up by Amalie Bruun, is back with a demo of a new song called "Rivers Blessed." The song features harpist Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) and is about Bruun's recent motherhood. Myrkur also notes that the song is part of the writing sessions for a new album.
"'Rivers Blessed' is written about my journey into motherhood, a path that by no means was easy but it changed my life and how I view the world forever," she said. "I wanted the song to have a strong feeling of winter, and therefor the harp is the only instrument, because its sound reminds me of falling snowflakes.
"The chorus is from an old Danish poem called ‘There is nothing in the world as silent as snow’ and it talks of the silent, pure and gentle new world you find after the snow has fallen, which feels like nature’s magic."
"Rivers Blessed" is available on Bandcamp here.
