Jenny Hval "Sabbath"
Published Apr 09, 2015Norwegian singer-songwriter Jenny Hval has let loose yet another awesomely out-there preview of her anticipated Apocalypse Girl LP, with this latest leak being a vivid psych-pop piece called "Sabbath."
The track coasts along on an easy-going but funky break and shimmering but spacious six-string lines, though it also incorporates pastoral woodwinds and lush vocal melodies. Hval dances between a straightforward spoken word tone and more elastic, falsetto cries as she details a story involving a naked shower mate, the steely spikes that support her body, and more.
Crossing the lines of vintage orchestral pop, R&B and experimental arrangements, the latest Apocalypse Girl single can be found below. The album itself arrives June 9 via Sacred Bones.
