When the Norwegian singer/songwriter – whose haunting vocal has scored the past decade via various seminal incarnations – decided to go solo, she had no new direction in mind. Rather than search for a sound, she booked a series of shows at a club in Oslo, asked a few of her favourite musicians to join her and waited to see what happened. “Because everyone has a computer these days there’s no limit to how many times you can multi-track. I’m sick of that. Big, busy songs don’t touch me emotionally anymore. I hoped to go the other way – to remove as much as I could and be left with a beating heart.” Frøkedal will release her third album, entitled Flora, on Fysisk Format this summer.
