We are delighted to be joined this June by Norwegian singer-songwriter Susanne Sundfør. Sundfør’s 2017 release Music for People in Trouble takes on a more stripped back approach to her earlier work and departs from the electronically based tones which we heard in the 2015 release Ten Love Songs. The album takes inspiration from Sundfør’s travels around the globe and features the delectable singles “Undercover” and “Mountaineers”. “Mountaineers” is a collaboration with John Grant and showcases a more intimate, lyrically raw side of Sundfør. Her set is guaranteed to be a beautifully melodic and evocative and simply cannot be missed!
“Music for People in Trouble is poetry without being poetry. It is one of the gentlest excursions of art pop to come this year.” Pop Matters
“Another triumph for Sundfør, who delivers complex, maudlin subjects with lightness and majesty.” – The Guardian
