Blood Bitch

sacred bones


Released: 30th Sep 2016


lp + download

Released: 30th Sep 2016


with each album, the Norwegian artist has become progressively more engaging, whilst still sounding entirely uncompromising & challenging.

in this respect, she's followed a similar trajectory to that of julia holter & shares much in common sonically with holter's expansive avant-pop (as well as that of julianna barwick, olga bell & kate bush's more experimental moments). in many respects, 'blood bitch' is a complete 180° from her last album - in subject matter, execution & production. it's Hval’s most focused album but the lens is filtered through an unexpected gaze. in her own words, it's "a poetic diary of modern transience & transcendence...It’s also the first album where I’ve started reconnecting with the goth & metal scene. It’s an album of vampires, lunar cycles, sticky choruses & the smell of warm leaves & winter".
