Jenny Hval Announces UK Dates, Shares Zero Budget Video For ‘Sabbath’

‘Apocalypse, girl’, the latest album by Norwegian artist Jenny Hval was only released last month but already seems to be a cert to feature in all those end-of-year ‘Best Of..’ lists that we all love.  Well, that I love cos I’m a nerd and LISTS! But seriously, it’s an astonishing record, there doesn’t seem to be a review out there that isn’t gushing with praise (including mine).

Hval will spend the next few months touring the United States before coming to the UK for a short tour in November. Be sure to go along if this fascinating artist is in your neck of the woods/post code/hood/manor yadda yadda…

As well as tour dates, Jenny Hval has shared a video for album highlight ‘Sabbath’. You can keep your Taylor Swift videos whose budget would swallow the GDP of a small European country. The video for ‘Sabbath’ was filmed on the mobile phone of collaborator Zia Anger, who says the clip is “best viewed on a cracked screen”. As much as I like Taylor Swift, this video looks more fun than the one for ‘Bad Blood’.

‘Apocalypse, girl’ is out now on Sacred Bones
