Girl In Red, Marie Ulven announces her debut album if I could make it go quiet out April 30 on AWAL. The album was written by Girl In Red, and co-produced by Matias Tellez. The album single “Serotonin” was co-produced by FINNEAS.
Of the album, Marie states: “if i could make it go quiet is an attempt to learn what it’s like to be human; to deal with the scariest parts of myself; to live with the pain of knowing i’m only flesh and bones; to be angry, broken and unforgiving yet still able to wear my heart on my sleeve; i’m shedding light on the darkest parts of my mind and i’m letting everyone in; if i could make it go quiet is me simply trying to understand what the fuck is going on.
Norwegian Marie Ulven has taken the world by storm ever since “I wane be your girlfriend” exploded in 2016. Today she releases a new song “rue”.
“rue” began in an unlikely place — a Guitar Center in Times Square where she was trying out acoustic guitars and happened upon its chord progression. Taking further shape at the back of her tour bus, it’s inspired by the parallels she recognized between herself and the character of Rue in HBO’s Euphoria. “She is a drug addict, which I’m not,” says Marie. “But a lot of the stuff she’s felt and is trying to escape from is shit I’m dealing with all the time.” Returning to Norway, she began to construct a far bigger arrangement. The song sees Marie battle with mental health struggles. “That’s some heavy ass work,” says Marie. “It’s not physical work but it feels like it because it’s so hard.” https://worldinred.com/
