Artists such as Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, and Kári P. epitomises Reistrup's early work. He has a background in classical music which we find examples of in the period between 2007-2010. Songs such as "Friðsæla Stund" from the album Hugafar á ferð and "Náttarvøka" from the album Trý fet frá tilveruni have clear references to classical music.
Reistrup released his fourth album on 2 December 2013. The album is titled "'Áðrenn vit hvørva''. The album was recorded in Berlin in August 2012 and in Reykjavík in November 2012 and June 2013. Áðrenn vit hvørva - or "Before we disappear" - is produced by Ólavur Jákupsson and Janus Rasmussen. The song "Vegurin" was the first single from the album and was released August 1 2013.
Reistrup has played in countries such as England, Scotland, Iceland, Germany, Denmark, and The Faroe Islands.
