Much, much <3 <3 to all the all the people credited above (that are not me)!
I wrote something about it: What does eternity feel like? How do you ‘live’ when there is no death? Usually, the vampire is depicted as a lonesome, all-knowing and ancient creature combining violence, aggressive sexuality and deceitful youth. The pack behind the video for ‘Female Vampire’ wanted to explore vampiric eternity in a different narrative: in a group of romancing friends. The vampire friends move through their hometown of Oslo, partaking in public and private rituals of moving together. We also wanted to combine ideas from old vampire trash movies and modern trashy iPhone videos, resulting in an enigmatic world of time-lapse like slow motion where everything is always moving, or moving on. Not there, or not there yet.
I made a trailer for my new album.

BLOOD BITCH IS COMING. SEPTEMBER 30th.
Click here to listen to first single Female Vampire:
Female Vampire is a hunting song, a scene in which a vampire looks for fresh blood on the dancefloor. This vampire is timeless, but also contemporary. She feels old, but is also struck by restlessness and boredom. She’s tired of killing but can’t help feeling bloodlust.
“Apocalypse, girl” is OUT in the world via Sacred Bones Records and Su Tissue (NO) and gets a lot of love on best of 2015 lists. What a year it’s been. Can’t thank my band and audiences + everyone who helped us out enough!
The tender Apocalypse continues into 2016 in Australia, and in Norway.
Meanwhile: Celebrating! Always!
Also, “Meshes of Voice”, my collaboration with the wonderful Susanna, is now out on limited edition vinyl! Order a copy here.
“Meshes of Voice” by Susanna and I won the Norwegian Grammy in “Åpen Klasse” (Open Category)! We were very surprised and grateful and very, very close to completely speechless. Thanks to everybody who were involved in the project, both back in 2009 (when it was a concert piece) and for the 2014 record!
