Susanne Sundfør biography
Susanne Sundfør is a classically trained singer and pianist from Oslo, Norway. After a couple of years playing her material live, she released her self-titled debut in 2007, a nice pop record reminiscent of Tori Amos' early works. She would follow it the next year with Take One, a re-recording of the songs from the first album on a single acoustic session.

Afterwards, she moved away from the classic singer-songwriter sound to a more electronic and adventurous approach to music, recruiting Jaga Jazzist's Lars Horntveth as collaborator on her following records. While still strong on melody, her next works would feature complex harmonies, unusual chord progressions and a heavy use of electronics paired with lavish orchestral arrangements, the first result of which was 2010's The Brothel, a loose concept album about domination and how people connect to each other and hierarchies in society.

In 2011 she made a slight detour as a composer, releasing A Night at Salle Pleyel, an instrumental electronic piece that would not look bad next to some of the German electronic greats. Her latest album is the acclaimed The Silicone Veil, released in 2012.

Susanne Sundfør's dramatic, elaborate, and dynamic music draws influences from decades of pop but it is also tinted with hues of classical music and Norwegian folk. Coupled with the lyrics and her impressive siren-like voice, this artist delivers an atmosphere that is often dark and sombre, but also uplifting, and ultimately gorgeous.

Review by zbambus

4 stars This album caught my interest when I heard the first songs on the radio. Especially the tracks "I Resign" and "Walls" immediately felt "right" on all accounts. I will compare it to the best work of Joni Mitchell.

Strong melodies with a strong voice with a bit sloppy pronunciation of the words and the thrill of nearly, but never actually, missing the tune.

This album grows on You and sure points to greater things to come.

As a debut album of an artist that would continue to grow rapidly into her own expression (already the next "new" album, "The Brothel" would give us a mature, focused artist) this is clearly a 4 star album.
