Susanne Sundfør released her first (eponymous) album in 2007, and in the ten years since, she has solidified her place as one of Norway’s premier singers, songwriters and producers. She has released six albums (three of them reaching #1 in Norway), and has also collaborated with artists as varied as Röyksopp (with whom she recorded the #1 hit "Running to the Sea") and M83. In addition to recording, Susanne is an accomplished producer, helming her own music as well as having worked with Norwegian Grammy-winning duo Bow To Each Other. She is currently working on new music.

You’re left with music that sounds, at turns, not impossible to imagine on the Radio One playlist and not unlike Throbbing Gristle, polarities that shouldn’t work together, but that Sundfør somehow turns into a thrilling, unified whole: a pretty astonishing trick and all the evidence you need that she’s something very special.
