Jenny Hval has in recent years made a name for herself as an artist,
musician and writer both in Norway and abroad. When her third record
Viscerawas released in 2011, WIRE magazine described the record as: “a
stunning achievement both conceptually and musically.”

Viscera was recorded with Hval’s own free rock trio and overflowed with intimate
detail and surrealistic bodily imagery. The follow-up Innocence Is
Kinky(2013) was produced in Bristol, England by PJ Harvey collaborator
John Parish, who helped bring out the intimate qualities of her lyrics
and sharpened her improvisational tendencies, weaving spellbinding new
forms of intelligent, experimental pop with injections from mythology,
theory and gender politics. You can also trace her no-holds-barred
streams of consciousness and unorthodox subject matter back to earlier
heroes such as Einstürzende Neubauten’s Blixa Bargeld (her title puns on
their LP “Silence Is Sexy”), Patti Smith, Michael Gira, Nick Cave and
Kate Bush.

Jenny Hval studied Creative Writing at the University of
Melbourne, and Literature at the University of Oslo. She has previously
released two albums under the alias Rockettothesky as well as two books –
the novelPerlebryggeriet (The Pearl Brewery) in 2009 and the collage
text Inn i ansiktet (Sings with her eyes) in 2012. Alongside this she
has, produced collaborative performances and sound installations, as
well as contributing to magazines, anthologies and newspapers.
