To those who lazily compared Anna Von Hausswolff's debut album, Singing From The Grave, to Kate Bush, it will come as a brutal shock. The fragile atmospheres of that impressive debut, one that earned her huge acclaim in her native Sweden, have been blasted away and what's emerged from the wasteland left behind is a dizzying masterpiece that, she proudly states, calls upon, amongst others, Elizabeth Fraser, Jefferson Airplane, PJ Harvey, Earth, Barn Owl, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galás.
CITY SLANG is deeply honored to announce the signing of Anna Von Hausswolff and the consequential release of her opus that is 'CEREMONY' on June 17th 2013 in Europe (Excluding Scandinavia).
We unleash one of the most impressive tracks of the record, 'DEATHBED', which also happens to be the longest piece of music to come out this year. Make sure you hang on through the entire 9 minutes though, as the end result is nothing short of amazing. And it is, after all, Friday afternoon.
