Unnveig Aas - How Long Must A Woman Mourn


A new discovery of a not quite so new song (released in October last year) sees me fall under the haunting spell of Norwegian singer/songwriter (perhaps band - I couldn't find any information in English) Unnveig Aas.

With a track titled "How Long Must A Woman Mourn" I doubt you're expecting to hear an adrenaline pumping pop monster and you'd be right, the track however is a stunner, six minutes in length and bedazzling throughout with shimmering electric guitar and glistening effects adding ambiance and intensity to a strummed acoustic and Unnveig's potent vocal, slowly unraveling itself to become a dramatic, bittersweet beauty that flourishes in both the contemporary and modern.

You can download the track now via iTunes.

There's more tracks to be discovered on her soundcloud page, "Time Has Changed Us"  a heart-wrenching country-folk ballad that reminds me of an early First Aid Kit, full of simple arrangements and fragile melody yet pure and timeless throughout, it's gorgeous.
