Additionally, she has collaborated with Yoshimi from Boredoms and Free Kitten. After sharing the stage with well-known artists like Lydia Lunch as well as Stevie Jackson from Belle and Sebastian. Today, she shares her new single “Streets”.
Hailed “the rocktronica queen of experimental music” in her native country, she remains truthful to her artistic vision. “I find beauty in flaws and that which is not perfect is what excites me, I love the unusual, the unexpected, untrained and unplanned… I hope my music portrays that in its sound”. In order to keep the authenticity and imperfection alive, her new 2-part EP collection called The Street Light Leads To The Sea was recorded only in three days with a few musicians specifically known and hand-picked for their improvisational skills. The moment the record button was on, each musician was encouraged to simply go wild and free.
The result comes in the shape of “Streets”, the Sonic Youth, The Kills, The Pixies and Le Tigre- inspired track filled with attitude, vibe and raw emotion, out April 29th.
