SMALLTOWN SUPERSOUND



12"

Released: 2nd Mar 2018

£9.99


the new project by Norwegian avant-pop artist Jenny Hval & multi-instrumentalist Håvard Volden, conjures sounds & moods displaced from specific moments in time, existing purely in the moment, yet tantalisingly just outside of our reach.

on the 13 minutes of ‘drive’, frissons of electricity & hand drums give way to a persistent beat & shimmering synths that are as menacing as they are strangely serene. Above it all are Hval's vocals, delivering meditations on the nature of performance, gender, & ownership of one's self & the material things that exist in our lives. ‘Accept’ is quite the left turn from the lyrical interplay & relatively formal structure of ‘Drive’; the 11-minute composition is atmospheric bliss, with jagged guitar tremolo, free-jazz drumming, & intense synths puncturing pockets of silence as Hval's voice wordlessly snakes in & out of frame.
