Therese Aune (NO) operates within an evocative sound universe, where acoustic instruments, like piano and harmonium, meet soaring synthesizers and a sonorous powerful voice. The result is elegant dream pop that brings to mind artists like Beach House and Grizzly Bear. The past few years, she has made music for films, sound books, and art installations, besides playing concerts both in and outside of Norway. Amongst the highlights are festivals like By:larm (NO), Iceland Airwaves (ICE), Berlin Festival (GER), Días Nórdicos (ESP), SXSW and CMJ (US).
Her latest release, the EP Cocoon, was recorded on a small island on the west coast of Norway, Giske, in Ocean Sound Recordings. Marcus Forsgren (Lionheart Brothers, Bror Forsgren, Jaga Jazzist) joined her as a technician and producer. It was released through Riot Factory in 2015.
