Jenny Hval hails from Oslo, Norway. She's a singer/songwriter, but touches on material that you might find daring and unusual for the genre. Jenny is fearless with her choice in topics and does not shy away from a little harmless sexual provocation. But don't think that her forwardness is tasteless or vulgar. She is smart about it. With talent oozing out of every sweet, beautiful, and sultry note, she draws you in. You are likely unfamiliar with her past projects (I must admit that I was too), but it is never too late to start thumbing through the things that made Jenny Hval into the artist that she is now. And with her new album, Innocence is Kinky set to hit the US next week, now is the time to get to know her. And if you are feeling daring, indulge your senses in this racy interview with Pitchfork. It's a steamy read and likely something you weren't expecting from a music interview. Also take a listen to two tracks fom her forthcoming album that is already released elsewhere. Folks....Jenny Hval...if you dare.
