Although music probably is the first thing we think of when it comes to Hval, she is a woman of many talents and interests, expressing herself trough books, sound installations, poetry and visual art. Usually she has brought her song to life through the use of computer loops and vocal edits, but Hval has later on has expanded her soundscape with collaborations with other musicians such as Øystein Moen (Jaga Jazzist) and Thor Harris (Swans), and her current band including Håvard Volden, Zia Anger and Annie Bielski.
This time around, she will be supporting Perfume Genius in London, before she embarks on a solo tour together with her band supporting her new album. The first single from the album is the quirky The Battle is Over.
