In the midst of Norway’s flourishing young creative music scene you’ll find experimental indie duo LISTEN TO GIRL. Their intimate and delicate sound, an invitation to be guided through new territory via lush duel vocals and soaring chorus hooks.
On their second album Long-term World they’ve taken their wholly acoustic and stripped down sound a step further, it’s almost reminiscent of that 70s golden-era studio sound before you notice the unruly synth bass and lo-fi electronic drum samples underneath those vintage instruments. The duo clings to some kind of finesse, though bringing in layers of impulse and improvisations to their laboriously sculptured self-production.
Listen to Girl is the combination of guitarist/singer Christian Winther and multi-instrumentalist Ina Sagstuen. With alluring songwriting, an innovative mindset, to magical voices and a driving guitar, the duo embraces their love for post-punk, indie folk and bossa nova. Debut album “Sea And Dirt” got picked up by Susanna Wallumrød, one of Norway’s most distinctive artists, and released on her SusannaSonata label in 2016. She wrote: “Music that resonates with something on the inside. Catchy and unique, it is an art to write such songs. An experience of both something familiar and yet undiscovered.”
