A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to stumble across Ingvild Østgård as she played in downtown Oslo, prior to her first official release Ingvild Østgård Live Session, a live album which quite frankly sounds very little like a live recording — in a good way, obviously. Musically speaking, Ingvild Østgård’s music has many strong similarities to other Norwegian artists in what I ironically call “the Norwegian indiesphere”, notably Therese Aune (but less quirky), Ane Brun or at times even the funky, melancholic pop of Philco Fiction, particularly with their first EP Give Us To The Lions in mind. Indeed very fitting for this cold, blue season that is oh so slowly approaching us.
