Havnatt is a Norwegian duo writing, performing and recording dark folk music.
It all started when Cecilie Langlie (vocalist of Skumring, Vagrant God and Omit) and Tom Simonsen (guitarist/vocalist of It's the End, Skumring, Vagrant God and Omit) were commissioned by the Skagestad family to turn three poems by the late Norwegian author Tormod Skagestad into music. The three poems were "Myrulla", "Havnatt" and "Prammen" from the collection of poems entiteled "Havdøgn". This was back in the spring of 2006, and it was intended to be a one-time thing.
Fast forward to the autumn of 2009. Cecilie and Tom were asked by Prophecy Productions to write an exclusive piece of music for a collection that turned into a double CD release called "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings". The new Havnatt track included in that release was entitled "Dagen og natta", but the process also inspired Cecilie and Tom to start writing more new Havnatt material. "Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings" was released on October 29, 2010.
On February 15, 2012 Havnatt released their "Havdøgn" EP on the Secret Quarters label. This release contains completely remixed and remastered versions of "Myrulla", "Havnatt" and "Prammen". But the release also contains two completely new tracks that give a hint of the future direction of Havnatt.
Recording of the upcoming album entitled "Etterlatte" is now in progress and scheduled for an early 2013 release. "Var je solblesten" is one of possibly more singles to be released as previews for this album. The special single version of "Var je solblesten" releases on September 25, 2012.
