“Imagine flying into a new untouched land as a free bird, seeing the beauty of pure nature, the clean cool air tickling your skin, your eyes hypnotized into this majestic view. Selsom with Eiter through his wonderful harmonies manage to provide us a daydreaming of hope.”

Eiter, meaning "small hail stones" in Norwegian, is part of a one-track-a-month ode to snow concept. It is an electronic neo-classical single with a piano solo B-side. The A-side is lead by an intimate pacy piano rhythm, covered by ambient strings, arpeggiator synths and vocal chops reminiscent of Ólafur Arnalds.

Selsom is the composer alias of songwriter and producer Stian Vedøy. Hailing from a windswept west coast island in Norway, with not much else to do other than playing music, Vedøy started having piano lessons as a 6 year old. Having given most of his adult years too his indie folk pop project, Firewoodisland, he has now decided that it is time create an outlet for his piano lead compositions. With hints of misty and organic sounding synths and other sonic nuances, Selsom takes you to an atmospheric and cinematic state of deep focus.
