Dark, delicious, scandinavian dream-pop at it’s best…Anne Marie Almedal teases us once again with another single, and another taste of her forthcoming new album ”We Dance Alone” (Out May/22).
Anne Marie Almedal has slowly but surely made quite a name for herself over the years as beguiling frontperson for Norwegian art-pop shoegazers Velvet Belly, then as a thoroughbred ”female Nick Drake” singer/songwriter folk-pop chanteuse for her previous four solo albums, with some stunning tv soundtrack placements and covers of ”Paint It Black”, and The Cure’s ”Lovesong” breaking hearts and reaching new fans along the way…
Breathing In Breathing Out is a strong indication of the emotional depths and direction Anne Marie’s new album is about to take us on, with a bittersweet backdrop of jagged indie guitar haze, synth swirls, massively saturated drum machines, and her (dare we say it) Kate Bush-esque, ice-queen magical delivery. A voice that can make time stand still, and like every pop siren should make the listener quickly lose sense of it all, if only for a fleeting moment!
Produced and co-written with husband & film composer Nicholas Sillitoe (”Occupied”/Netflix), together with the twisted Ableton chillstep beat meastro Even S, and mixed by none other than Tim Bran (Primal Scream/Dreadzone/London Grammar)
If any time we need to keep ”breathing in breathing out”, now isn´t a bad time!
