My Summer as a Salvation Soldier - aka Thorir


My Summer as a Salvation Soldier - aka Thorir

"Anarchists are Hopeless Romantics" is the second solo album from the 20-year old Thorir, who now goes by the moniker, "My Summer as a Salvation Soldier." This song, Stagedives and Highfives, is typical of the singer-songwriter´s heartfelt poetic musings.

The newly named artist plays with a handful of other bands in town, but it is his solo music that is gaining attention abroad. Learn more about him from his label 12 Tónar or from his own self-designed sparse site.
