Jennie Abrahamson, 'Wolf'

Info: If you haven't heard of Swedish artist Jennie Abrahamson yet you surely will in the very near future. Before the release of her last single, 'The War', she was already receiving plenty of airplay on Clash Music, Q Magazine and BBC Radio 6, had performed with fellow Swede Ane Burn, and toured with one of her idols, Peter Gabriel. Her dark and atmospheric sound touches on the likes of Lykke Li, Bat for Lashes and Kate Bush, with the above song reminding this listener of Bush's 'Running Up That Hill' in the opening bars (indeed she performed her part of the duet for 'Don't Give Up' on tour with Gabriel). 2015 will see the release of her album Gemini Gemini with 'Wolf' and b-side 'Phoenix' due out on the 16th of March. Abrahamson is undoubtedly a special talent who absorbs the creativity and experimentation that can be found in the work of those she admires whilst applying her own artistic individuality to her music, I'm certainly looking forward to sitting down and taking in her full album in the next few months.
