Following her previous well received single ‘Wings’, Brooklyn-based dream pop artist Kirsten Knick aka Völuspa has now returned to deliver a new track, with the ambient infused, “Feel You”. The song is now available via most streaming services.
Much like her work to date, ‘Feel You’ occupies that tentative bridge between ethereal ambience and a lucid dreamlike experience that aims to excite the hairs on the back of your neck. Mixing a light piano-led feel with minimal percussion, the frontwoman conjures up a feeling of pure warmth that touches the soul as she manages to breathe life into every beat.
Having cut her teeth as an artist by performing with the likes of Spiritualized and Hot Chip over the last few years, Völuspa is seen as more of a Beach House meets Lana Del Rey kind of artist. With already a healthy buzz floating around her, ‘Feel You’ looks set to be the sound that defines her and the path she has set up for herself.
Völuspa on the new single: “Feel You was written in response to the calls of a loved one heard through the wind coming from the mountains in Montana. The song is about our infinite existence and how death is just an illusion.” ‘Feel You’ is due to be released on the 22nd June via Icons Creating Evil Art, and is due to become the start of a very busy year for her.
Völuspa is the moniker of Kirsten Knick, a Brooklyn-based performer. Bay Area born, she honed her sound in London performing with Spiritualized and Hot Chip. Knick makes the the sounds of lucid dreams and forgotten nightmares. Past mistakes and future possibilities. It’s a siren that speaks to the light that shines inside all of us. They’re a warmth that haunts you in the night.
