Frida Hyv÷nen: Silence Is Wild
On Silence is Wild, Hyv÷nen continues to take an utterly modern approach to classic songwriting forms: blending the confessional with the fictional; mixing wit with a sexuality that shifts from the refined to the raw; all the while using language which dances effortlessly between the timeless and the contemporary, referencing high art and pop culture in a transcendent manner which masterfully put Hyv÷nen at the top of a new international class of singer-songwriters.
Frida Hyv÷nen: Until Death Comes
Carving a path through the fertile land of Sweden, Frida Hyv÷nen is a talented piano-based songwriter in the vein of Laura Nyro with a passionate bite and a voice like an icicle that cuts deep. Recorded in the legendary Atlantis studio in Stockholm and co-produced with Jari Haapalainen, Frida's debut record, Until Death Comes features a raw home-recording feel not dissimilar to the Stones' Beggar's Banquet, Joni Mitchell's Blue or Carole King's Tapestry.Loved in her home country, she's just beginning to peek out into the rest of the world by touring in support of country-mates Jens Lekman, JosÚ Gonzalaz and the Concretes (who originally released Until Death Comes in Scandinavia on their own Licking Fingers imprint).
