Therese Aune (NO) is a classically trained pianist, that skillfully weaves folk, classical and electronic textures into evocative and elegant dream pop that brings to mind artists like Grizzly Bear and Beach House. Her music comes in acoustic forms or drizzled with electronic elements.
Her debut album, Billowing Shadows, Flickering Light (Riot Factory) was recorded and produced by Sturla Mio Þórisson (Owen Pallett, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) and released in Norway in 2012, as well as in the US through Red Eye Transit Records in 2013.
With her latest release, the EP Cocoon, she decided to move her music towards a more electronic expression and use Marcus Forsgren (Lionheart Brothers, Jaga Jazzist) as a producer. It was released May 8th on Riot Factory.
Aune has played at several big festivals both in and outside of Norway. Some of the highlights are By:larm, The Oya Festival, Berlin Festival (DE), Iceland Airwaves (ICE), Días Nordicos (ES), SXSW (US) and CMJ (US). She has also toured Germany and Switzerland supporting Norwegian Einar Stray, as well as playing three shows in Japan.
