On “To the North”, Kari Rueslåtten has brought a darker–edged atmosphere to her acoustic, melancholic Norwegian folk. She has created a soundtrack of the North, which bring herself, and her listeners, back “home”. “I´m interested in creating emotions in the listener, and mental resting places that allow people to close their eyes and transcend to a different environment”, she said. “For me, I like music that creates images in my head that unfold into new stories and new worlds, and invariably these are my home, and the landscapes of the North”.
The single “Battle Forevermore” from the upcoming album “To The North” is out now! The single is released digitally as well as on a 7″ vinyl picture disc, limited edition. On the B side is “Turn, Turn, Turn”. The picture disc as well as the To The North album can be ordered here.
The first single “Turn, turn, turn” from Kari Rueslåtten´s upcoming solo-album is out! This is a cover version of the big hit by the Byrds from 1965. “Turn, turn, turn” in Kari´s version is slow, melancholic and atmospheric – almost a rewriting of the song originally made by legend song writer Pete Seeger. The song deals with time, about life and death – how we are all bound together in the circle of life.
