From teen goth metal musician to experimental art-pop pioneer – not to mention novelist – Norwegian artist Jenny Hval traces no ordinary path. Her seventh album, last year’s The Practice of Love, moves into more hypnotic, 90s-trance type territory, but her non-traditional spirit remains. She doesn’t just play songs. Film, performance art, poetry, and prose burrow their way into her work, which has always dealt with the visceral vs the imagined: bodies, voices, memories, landscapes, gender, sexuality. It’s an eerie euphoria you’re unlikely to experience anywhere else.
