The last couple of months have been quite magical for young Norwegian indie artist Marie Ulven, aka girl in red (artist name originating from Marie once being in love with a girl in a red sweater).
Having written songs since 2015, she won Urørt back in October – an annual talent contest for unsigned artists in Norway (with Aurora as one of the judges) – as the first female solo artist since 2007. She is referred to as a singer/songwriter that in a very short time has showed herself as a mature talent and a brilliant live artist. The songs ‘summer depression’ and ‘i wanna be your girlfriend’ have already garnered millions of streams on Spotify.
She also recently offered up an ecstatic performance at prize award show P3 Gull in Oslo, so watch the full performance – including her euphoric stage dive – here!
In the midst of all this, girl in red now releases a heartwarming video to one of her latest singles, ‘we fell in love in october’. Portraying a couple in love – smoking cigarettes, kissing and sharing that lovestruck feeling – the visuals emphasise the song’s dreamy indie vibes and lo-fi sound perfectly. You can watch the video below, and keep your ears open for more from girl in red in the future…
