May I introduce Synne Sanden to you? One of Norway’s hidden indie and electro pop secrets and an artist we definitely should keep an eye on! She makes expressive pop mixed with tones of rock, what you can hear on the raw guitars and hard hitting drums, elements of electro visible on the dark synths or the electronic beats and her crystal clear and totally likeable voice.
Last week her third album ‘In Between Sparks’ was released on Vilje, this album is a love story, but not just sweet, it is lyrical and grasps themes like fear, rejection, jealousy, euphoria or immortality. Synne Sanden’s powerful presence drags the listener into an unfiltered universe behind the curtain of an intoxicating and destructive relationship. Describing the feelings you might have in a relationship, but can’t put into words.
These ten tracks are so fascinating, because on every song you can hear novel and extraordinary sounds, for example on the track ‘Bommerang’ first an old, mellow organ, then a metallic carillon and in the end it sounds like an wide orchestra with an unusual instrumentation. Nevertheless this album with all it’s facets should contemplate as one creation and a trip to all aspects and steps of love, where you will accompany by the charming voice of Synne, that you would believe everything!
