Track of the Week #4: Jenny Hval – Spells

by Thomas Blake

The lead track from Hval’s new The Long Sleep EP, Spells sees the Norwegian composer/songwriter/producer at her most oneiric, and also her most accessible. It’s stunning. The sonic richness of Julia Holter, the sweet/sinister vocals, the drum beat that sounds like it was lifted from Queen’s I Want To Break Free… this has it all.

The Long Sleep EP comes out on 24th May
