Norwegian duo Lost Girls are made up of Jenny Hval and multi-instrumentalist Havard Volden. Hval known the world over for her intriguing and engaging songwriting, has never disappointed with whatever she decides to do. With the duo’s debut album Menneskekollektivet announced for release in late March, their new single by the same name should reveal a good idea as to what the album will be.
While the song clocks in over the twelve minute mark, the words Hval utilizes here against the ambient tones stick with you. Almost like a calming voice within a calming world, the two elements work well together. There’s a decisive nature in how the song plays out. The nuance of tone between the synths and the vocals creates a magical sound that cannot be denied in its presence and its power.
The song is ready to stream above or wherever you stream music. Menneskekollektivet is available to preorder digitally on March 26 and physically on April 23 from Smalltown Supersound.
