Next week, City Slang are giving Anna von Hausswolff’s second album of dark-hued, cinematic pop Ceremony a worldwide release.
Says von Hausswolff of the album: “I didn’t just want Ceremony to be a collection of songs. I wanted it to be like a film, with every single part connected to the other, with shifting moods and settings, but a thread holding all the tracks together. I listen to a lot of film scores, and in many the music is able to move freely without the typical structures that we find in commercial music.”
