Jenny Hval (ex-Rockettothesky) is a Norwegian artist and writer. With her background in writing and performance her music is poetic, sensual, challenging, dark and beautiful as well as melodic and spacious.I'm currently enthralled with her new album with Håvard Volden called Nude on Sand. It is very different to any of her music that is featured on this page. But so far I have not been able to find any of it in an embedding situation. So you have to trust me and go find it and take a listen for yourself.
Now for those of you who don't know Jenny Hval, here's some of her other recent work.
This has to be one of the wildest places I could imagine to see a concert.
