SOPHIE HUNGER 1983 (2010)

Sophie Hunger

Scandanavian singer songwriter, born Émilie Jeanne-Sophie Welti Hunger in Bern, Switzerland, in March 1983.

Difficut to pidgeon hole, Hunger falls somewhere between Tori Amos and Norah Jones. One moment quirky, the next backed by the jazzy tomobone playing of Michael Flury. Over the 14 tracks she flits from folk, to Madonna Vougue style pop, to the ethereal spheres occupied by the likes of Sarah McLachlan.

Her 2009 debut album Monday's Ghost went to #1 in the Swiss charts and led to her being named as one of the ten most important newcomers by Rolling Stone Magazine. 1983 can only enhance her growing reputation.

There are moments of shimmering beauty here, that certainly merit investing extended listening time. 1983 may not grab you by the balls from the outset (although the opening track Leave Me With The Monkeys is rather wonderful), but like the charms of a seductress, you're going to want to keep returning for more.
